The human estrogen receptor a (ERa) and the recently identified ERb share a high degree of amino acid homology; however, there are significant differences in regions of these receptors that would be expected to influence transcriptional activity. Consequently, we compared the mechanism(s) by which these receptors regulate target gene transcription, and evaluated the cellular consequences of coexpression of both ER subtypes. Previously, it has been determined that ERa contains two distinct… CONTINUE READING
