The dissociation rate of estrogen receptor-ligand complexes is increased by high concentrations of steroids and antiestrogens

The first-order dissociation rate constant, k-, of estradiol from uterine estrogen receptor, measured kin the presence of micromolar concentrations of diethylstilbestrol, increased linearly over a large concentration range (0-300 microM) of diethylstilbestrol. The experimental K- measured appears to be the sum of a basal dissociation rate constant corresponding to the spontaneous dissociation in the absence of diethylstilbestrol, and a diethylstilbestrol-induced dissociation rate constant, which is proportional to both the diethylstilbestrol concentration and the inverse of the cytosol concentration. Diethylstilbestrol induced the dissociation of estradiol in all species studied (lamb, calf and rat) and of estrone and 2 antiestrogens in lamb uterus. Various steroids and triphenylethylene antiestrogens also efficiently induced the dissociation of estradiol from the estrogen receptor. However, the potency of these inducers, which varied greatly, was not correlated with the binding affinity for the estrogen receptor. Structural characteristics and the hydrophobicity of the inducers, however, did appear to be important parameters. The relative efficiency of inducers varied depending on the ligand that was bound to the receptor. Thi...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.

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.
