Structures of Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals Determine Binding to and Activation of the Estrogen Receptor α and Androgen Receptor

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can interact with nuclear receptors, including estrogen receptor α (ERα) and androgen receptor (AR), to affect the normal endocrine system function, causing severe symptoms. Limited studies queried…
