Controlling protein diversity

...n previous studies that hormones like estrogen and progesterone can change the amounts of proteins made by their target genes. When hormone binds to receptors inside the cells, they are activated to seek out target genes. They then recruit the coactivators ?in this case CAPERá and CAPERâ. These coactivators not o...

By creating molecular bridge, scientists change function of a protein

...ise fashion, Zhao said. They used testosterone and progesterone to build the bridge. The receptor was gradually altered to accept one steroid, then another, until accepting the desired one -- corticosterone, a potent glucocoticoid.
