Differences in the form of the salt-transformed estrogen receptor when bound by estrogen versus antiestrogen.

Our laboratory has previously reported that antiestrogen binding to molybdate-stabilized non-transformed estrogen receptor results in a larger form of the receptor in 0.3 M KCl when compared with estrogen bound receptor. Estradiol promoted the formation of monomers in the presence of 0.3 M KCl whereas antiestrogen appeared to promote dimer formation. We… CONTINUE READING
