HYPOTHESIS:Calcium binding proteins (CaBP) like calmodulin mediate unliganded estrogen receptorsignaling either by binding directly or through calcium to ER. Our objective is todiscover small molecules that mimic/block their association as potential alternatives fortamoxifen resistant breast cancers.
