Miroestrol is a chromene derivative with a chemical structure similar to an estrogenic hormone, estradiol (Terenius 1968) and is reported to exhibit an estrogenic-like effect through binding to intracellular estrogen receptor a (ER-[alpha]) and ER-[beta], which function as ligand-activated transcription factors (Matsumura et al.
