Western blot image of human MCF-7 cells treated with pervanadate (1 mM) for 30 min. (lanes 1-6). Some lanes of the blot were then treated with alkaline phosphatase (lanes 2, 4, & 6). The blot was probed with mouse monoclonal anti-ERα (Tyr-537) phospho-specific (lanes 1 & 2), rabbit polyclonal anti-ERα (C-terminus) (lanes 3 & 4), and rabbit polyclonal anti-ERα (Tyr-537) phospho-specific (lanes 5 & 6).

Estrogen Receptor α (C-terminus)
Estrogen receptor α (ERα) is a member of the steroid receptor superfamily and its structure includes an N-terminal ligand-independent transactivation domain (AF-1), a highly conserved DNA binding domain, and a C-terminal ligand-dependent transactivation domain (AF-2). AF-1 and AF-2 activate transcription independently and synergistically, and act in a promoter- and cell-specific manner. Phosphorylation at multiple sites provides an important mechanism to regulate ERα activity. Ser-104, Ser-106, Ser-118, and Ser-167 are located in the amino-terminal transcription activation function domain AF-1, and phosphorylation of these serine residues plays an important role in regulating ERα activity. In addition to these sites, phosphorylation of Tyr-537 has been implicated in maximal hormone binding, dimerization, and transcriptional activity. Tyr-537, located in the AF-2 domain, is phosphorylated by c-Src leading to nuclear export of ERα and degradation. Thus, a variety of phosphorylation events control ERα activity.

ERα (C-terminus) synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponds to amino acids in the C-terminus of human ERα. This sequence is well conserved in rat and mouse ERα, but is not found in ERβ
