Binding of estradiol receptor complexes to isolated human breast chromatin

Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry
E H Charreau, A Baldi


The interaction of estradiol-receptor complexes and isolated human breast tumor chromatin was studied under equilibrium conditions. The estradiol-receptor complexes bound specifically to the chromatin of hormone dependent tumors and showed a single class of binding sites with a Ka of 0.96 X 10(10) M-1 and a binding capacity of 1.5 pmoles/mg DNA. The binding was a temperature-dependent process and involved a "transformation" of the receptor protein. The heat-activated hormone-receptor complex was more active than the 8S form in the binding phenomenon. The specific interaction of estradiol-receptor complex with isolated chromatin was saturable and sensitive to conditions of temperature and ionic strength. Furthermore under optimal conditions no acceptor sites were detected in chromatin of hormone independent tumors.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
