The simplest model that explains these and other data is based on two suppositions (Fig. 6). First, helix 12 in the unliganded ERfJ LBD is in equilibrium between the THC/GEN-bound conformation, which precludes coactivator association, and the agonist-bound conformation seen in the E2- and DES-ERa LBD structures, which favors coactivator association (with the "inactive" THC/GEN-bound conformation being heavily favored). Second, rather than stabilizing a single static conformation of helix 12, ligands serve to shift the balance of this equilibrium.

Despite these similarities, recent studies suggest that ERa and ERfJ may play distinct roles in regulating gene expression in vivo. The two ERs have overlapping but distinct tissue distribution patterns; in rat, ERa is expressed in the uterus, testis, ovary, pituitary, kidney, epididymis, and adrenal glands and ERfJ is expressed in the uterus, testis, ovary, prostate, lung, bladder, and brain (Kuiper et al. 1997). Consistent with these differences in localization, deletion of the ERa and ERfJ genes in mice leads to substantially different phenotypes (Couse and Korach 1999; Ogawa et al.
