Subtype-selective nuclear hormone receptor modulators could potentially allow the development of valuable tissue-specific therapeutics. A simple biosensor that allows subtype-specific nuclear hormone receptor binding to be reflected by the growth phenotype of Escherichia coli cells has been constructed. This system will potentially enable the facile detection or evolution of subtype-selective hormone analogues.
