Agonist but not antagonist ligands induce conformational change in the mouse aryl hydrocarbon receptor as detected by partial proteolysis.


The cytosolic transcription factor known as the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) undergoes transformation to a DNA-binding form by a series of processes initiated by binding of ligand. Subsequent steps include dissociation of several proteins that are complexed with the inactive receptor, nuclear translocation, and dimerization with Arnt. We have used… (More)
