A charcoal assay and the synthetic estrogen [6,7-3H]R 2858 (17 alpha-ethynyl-11 beta-methoxyestradiol-17 beta) were used to show that rat skeletal muscle cytosol contains an estrogen receptor, which was characterized with regard to association and dissociation rate-constants at several temperatures. The degradation kinetics was also studied, and was more… (More)
