- PubMed Abstract:
Selective estrogen receptor modulators, such as 17β-estradiol derivatives bound to metal complexes, have been synthesized as targeted probes for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Here, we report the detailed 3D structure of estrogen receptor α ligand-binding domain (ERα-LBD) bound with a novel estradiol-derived metal complex, estradiol-pyridine tetra acetate europium(III), at 2.6 Å resolution. This structure provides important information pertinent to the design of novel functional ERα targeted probes for clinical applications.
