In the human liver, it gets metabolized into active metabolites like 4-OHT and endoxifen which are known to have 30 to 100 times more attraction for the ER compared to Tamoxifen. These metabolites which are very active compete with the estrogen in our body for binding with ER. Normally, it is seen in the breast tissue, 4-OHT tends to act as an ER antagonist to inhibit the transcription of genes that are estrogen-responsive.
