Structural evidence for ligand specificity in the binding domain of the human androgen receptor. Implications for pathogenic gene mutations.
P.M.Matias, P.Donner, R.Coelho, M.Thomaz, C.Peixoto, S.Macedo, N.Otto, S.Joschko, P.Scholz, A.Wegg, S.Bäsler, M.Schäfer, U.Egner, M.A.Carrondo.
The crystal structures of the human androgen receptor (hAR) and human progesterone receptor ligand-binding domains in complex with the same ligand metribolone (R1881) have been determined. Both three-dimensional structures show the typical nuclear receptor fold. The change of two residues in the ligand-binding pocket between the human progesterone receptor and hAR is most likely the source for the specificity of R1881 to the hAR. The structural implications of the 14 known mutations in the ligand-binding pocket of the hAR ligand-binding domains associated with either prostate cancer or the partial or complete androgen receptor insensitivity syndrome were analyzed. The effects of most of these mutants could be explained on the basis of the crystal structure.

Fig. 4. Stereo diagrams showing the interactions between the bound ligand and the protein chain in hAR LBD-R1881 (a), hPR LBD-R1881 (molecule A) (b), and hPR LBD-progesterone (c). Residues included are either hydrogen-bonded or have van der Waals contacts (cutoff distance 4.0 Å) with any of the ligands. Residues Val685 and Tyr763 in hAR LBD and corresponding residues Ile^699 and Tyr777 in hPR LBD are hydrogen-bonded to other residues or water molecules near the ligand-binding site and are also included. Bound ligand is colored black; conserved residues are colored gray; different residues in hAR LBD and hPR LBD are colored red. Residue labels with an asterisk denote residues that do not have van der Waals contacts within the specified cutoff distance with the ligand. Hydrogen bond distances for the hPR LBD·progesterone complex were calculated from the Protein Data Bank deposited coordinates of molecule A. Figures were produced with MOLSCRIPT (52).

The most recent references are shown first. Citation data come partly from CiteXplore and partly from an automated harvesting procedure. Note that this is likely to be only a partial list as not all journals are covered by either method. However, we are continually building up the citation data so more and more references will be included with time. Where a reference describes a PDB structure, the PDB code is shown on the right.
