Abstract/Summary

Phosphorylation of the serine residues in estrogen receptor (ER) α is important in transcriptional activation. Hence, methods to detect such posttranslational modifi cation events are valuable. We describe, in detail, the analysis of the phosphorylated ERα by electrophoretic separation of proteins and subsequent immuno-blotting techniques. In particular, phosphorylation of the ERα is one possible outcome of activation of the putative membrane estrogen receptor (mER), GPR30. Hence, phosphorylation represents a cross talk event between GPR30 and ERα and may be important in estrogen-regulated physiology.
