5). Based on previous correlations between the positioning of Hl2 and the ability of ERa and other NRs to form coactivator complexes , the conformation of the ERp LBD observed in both the THC and GEN complexes (Fig. 5) should be incapable of interacting with coactivators and, hence, should be transcriptionally silent for two reasons. First, key residues from helix 12 (Leu 490, Glu 493, and Met 494) that are predicted to form part of the coactivator recognition surface are inappropriately positioned.
We next used an antisense approach to assess MNAR' s role in estrogen regulation of gene transcription . MCF-7 cells were transfected with antisense or sense control oligonucleotides, total RNA was isolated, and TaqMan analysis was performed using a primer/ probe set designed to target MNAR, pS2 and cathepsin D - two genes known to be regulated by estrogens in MCF-7 cells. Levels of MNAR, pS2 and cathepsin D mRNA, normalized to GAPDH mRNA, are presented in Fig. 5 C. Expression of MNAR was substantially stimulated by E2 treatment.
