Abstract

Human estrogen receptor beta (hER beta) cDNA that encodes the full-length amino acid sequence has been isolated from testis poly(A)+ RNA with the combination of cDNA screening and reverse transcription-PCR. It is composed of a 1590-bp open reading frame and a segment of the 5'- and 3'-untranslated region (UTR) and encodes an additional 53 amino acids in the N-terminal region compared with the previously reported one. Protein interaction between ER alpha and ER beta was demonstrated in vitro by GST pull-down assay and in vivo by immunoprecipitation. Thus, this study indicates that ER alpha and ER beta can interact in vivo, cross-signaling each other.
