Minoxidil drug binding to androgen receptor. Molecular model of a drug molecule binding to an androgen receptor. The drug molecule (lower right) is minoxidil (C9.H15.N5.O), an antihypertensive vasodilator medication that is also used to treat hair loss. The receptor protein structure is represented here as ribbons and coils. The binding of hormones (such as testosterone and dihydrotestosterone) and drugs to the androgen receptor affects the function of the receptor, including the development of the male reproductive organs and secondary sexual characteristics.
