Oestrogen receptor (ER) β, the second ER, appears to be a tumour suppressor in most tissues that have been investigated. Recently, studies of prostate cancer have shown that tumour-suppressive effects of ERβ occur through varying mechanisms including increased apoptosis, reduced invasiveness and epithelial mesenchymal transition as well as inhibited proliferation. It has been suggested that ERβ is a potential drug target for the treatment of prostate cancer.
