Steroid hormones induce the transcriptional activity of their cognate receptors by recruiting a variety of cofactors. One of these, steroid receptor co-activator-1 (SRC-1) interacts with the ligand binding domains of a number of different receptors by means of LXXLL motifs. We have investigated the relative interaction of four such motifs in SRC-1a using a yeast two-hybrid assay. We demonstrate that ERalpha, ERbeta and ERbeta2 preferentially interact with motif 2 while GR, AR, PPARalpha and PPARgamma preferentially interact with motif 4. We show that the interactions depend not only on the LXXLL motif itself but also on residues flanking the motif.
