J Endocrinol. 2001 Jul;170(1):137-45.Synthetic estrogens have diverse chemical structures and may either positively or negatively affect the estrogenic signaling pathways through interactions with the estrogen receptors (ERs). Modeling studies suggest that 4-(1-adamantyl)phenol (AdP) and 4,4'-(1,3-adamantanediyl)diphenol (AdDP) can bind in the ligand binding site of ERalpha. We used fluorescence polarization (FP) to compare the binding affinities of AdP, AdDP and 2-(1-adamantyl)-4-methylphenol (AdMP) for human ERalpha and ERbeta with the binding affinities of the known ER ligands, diethylstilbestrol (DES) and 4hydroxytamoxifen (4OHT).
