Interestingly, also the testes secrete small amounts of estradiol. But certainly, testosterone is the main product of the testes. 3. Estrogen acts via receptors "Estrogen's classics" - the genomic pathway of estrogen action Since estrogen belongs to the family of steroids and estrogen receptors are part of the steroid receptor superfamily the following summary applies to steroid receptors, in general. As introduced, in contrast to protein hormones, which act via membranous hormone receptors, steroid molecules readily cross the cellular membrane because of their high lipophilicity.
G. castration experiments). But nevertheless they show in a well-defined biochemical environment potential interactions and activities, which can occur in the living cell in vivo. On one hand the initial model to explain estrogen's activity via ERa as a gene switch was rather simplistic. On the other hand the actual regulation, modulation, and in particular, the fine tuning of the transcriptional activity of nuclear receptors is of immense importance and highly complex. The understanding of these regulatory events may lead to the development of compounds and drugs that block or enhance ER activity.
But what are the common and what are the distinct structural characteristics of both ERs? ERa and ERf3: a basic comparison First of all the two types of ERs are products of two different genes. They are not two different types of one single gene, two splicing variants, a principle which is frequently occurring and which can be manifested by socalled alternative splicing. In alternative splicing, one preliminary mRNA (pre-mRNA) is processed in two ways resulting in two different mRNAs, consequently, resulting in two different proteins with possible functional differences.
