The purified rat liver glucocorticoid receptor protein was analyzed by limited proteolysis and amino acid sequence determination. The NH2 terminus appears to be blocked. The steroid-binding domain, defined by a unique tryptic cleavage site, corresponds to the COOH-terminal part of the protein with the domain border in the region of residue 518. The DNA-binding domain, defined by a region with chymotryptic cleavage sites, is immediately adjacent to the steroid-binding domain and reflects another domain border in the region of residues 410-414. The results described at the protein level in this report confirm functional data previously obtained by mutations at the genetic level.
