The broad expression pattern of ERp indeed points towards a more general role of this type of estrogen receptor in several tissues and it will be an important task to elucidate the differential physiological roles of ERp compared with those of ERa. This knowledge is of central importance with respect to the use of estrogens as drug in estrogen replacement therapy (ERTj see page 136) or for the application of specific ER antagonists to treat estrogen-dependent breast cancers.
1987 cloned the mouse ERa).

The steroid receptor on the other hand needs to be a specially designed molecule since it has to fulfill quite different functions. The ability to perform these different functions is provided by the structure of the steroid receptor.
