Structural characterization of the 9-10S estradiol receptor from calf uterus

Journal of Steroid Biochemistry
T RatajczakR Hähnel


An affinity chromatography-based method has been developed for estrogen receptor isolation which requires the inclusion of sodium molybdate in purification buffers for maintaining the large 9-10S form of the receptor. The protein products obtained from affinity chromatography of calf uterine receptor extracts or from extracts presaturated with estradiol have been analyzed by gel electrophoresis under denaturing conditions. Major estrogen sensitive proteins were peptides with Mr approximately 90,000, 65,000 and 50,000. Two additional proteins (60,000 and 53,000) of lower abundance and with demonstrated estrogen sensitivity were also observed. Affinity labeling with [3H]tamoxifen aziridine identified the Mr 65,000 protein as the estrogen receptor and suggested that the Mr 60,000, 53,000 and 50,000 peptide components were derived proteolytically from this parent unit. The 90,000 mol. wt component was readily dissociated from heparin-sepharose immobilized estrogen receptor by elution with low salt buffers without molybdate. Peptide mapping experiments indicated that the 90,000 mol. wt component was not related to the Mr 65,000 and 50,000 estrogen receptors, but confirmed the smaller binding unit to be a proteolytic fragment of the ...Continue Reading

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.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

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.

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.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS 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.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.
