General description

The steroid or nuclear receptor superfamily is an important group of transcription factors of growing importance to a large number of researchers. Topics include how to clone, characterize, identify, assay for, monitor changes, and analyze kinetics of novel receptors along with characterization of co-activators, receptor interactions, ligand binding studies, DNA binding studies, and assays such as CARLA.
