The human ER-beta is a newly discovered estrogen receptor initially cloned and characterized from testis. The size and structure of ER-beta is very similar to ER-alpha with the ligand and DNA binding domains being highly conserved, while the amino terminus which serves as their transactivation domain has diverged significantly. Similar in function to ER-alpha ER-beta binds to estrogen with a high affinity and regulates estrogen specific gene activation through direct interaction with estrogen response elements (ERE's).
