2I0G: Benzopyrans Are Selective Estrogen Receptor Beta Agonists (serbas) With Novel Activity In Models Of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benzopyran selective estrogen receptor beta agonist-1 (SERBA-1) shows potent, selective binding and agonist function in estrogen receptor beta (ERbeta) in vitro assays. X-ray crystal structures of SERBA-1 in ERalpha and beta help explain observed beta-selectivity of this ligand. SERBA-1 in vivo demonstrates involution of the ventral prostate in CD-1 mice (ERbeta effect), while having no effect on gonadal hormone levels (ERalpha effect) at 10x the efficacious dose, consistent with in vitro properties of this molecule.
