Estrogen Receptor: Structural Differences and Potential Implications on Selectivity Examined by the GRID/CPCA Approach

Author(s): I. R.A. de Menezes, A. Leitao, C. A. Montanari.

Abstract:

Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs) have been developed, but the selectivity towards the subtypes (ERα or ERβ) is not well understood. Based on three-dimensional structural properties of ligand binding domains, a model that takes into account this aspect was developed via molecular interaction fields and consensus principal component analysis (GRID/CPCA).

Keywords: ER subtypes, consensus PCA, selective estrogen receptor modulators, SERM, ligand binding domain, key interactions
