Abstract

Three different conformations of the ligand binding domain of the human estrogen receptor (ER-LBD) are observed for the native state when binding an agonist and when binding an antagonist. By conjugating ER-LBD conformation specific peptides to CdS nanoparticles, the three different states can be identified by anodic stripping voltarnmetry. This electrochemical sensor can detect and distinguish the binding of different ligands to the human estrogen receptor.
