By contrast, the AR is predominantly localized to the cytoplasm in the absence ofligand and exists within a large macromolecular complex of chaperone proteins that includes several members of the heat shock family (45). In this state, the AR is maintained in an inactive conformation that is not capable of binding to DNA.
