Steroid receptor heterodimerization demonstrated in vitro and in vivo.


The mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid receptors (MR and GR, respectively) are members of the intracellular receptor superfamily that bind as homodimers to the same hormone response elements (HREs). Physiological evidence suggests that MR and GR interact with each other in cells that express both receptors, implying that they might directly interact in… (More)
