Estrogen receptor and tamoxifenPDB ID: 3ERT
Estrogen receptor binds to the hormone estrogen and modifies the transcription of genes involved in sexual development. This structure includes the portion of the protein that binds to estrogen, with the anti-cancer drug tamoxifen blocking the binding site.
The structural basis of estrogen receptor/coactivator recognition and the antagonism of this interaction by tamoxifen.
