##### Abstract

Let $R$ be an ${E}_{2}$ ring spectrum with zero odd-dimensional homotopy groups. Every map of ring spectra $MU\to R$ is represented by a map of ${E}_{2}$ ring spectra. If $2$ is invertible in ${\pi }_{0}R$, then every map of ring spectra $MSO\to R$ is represented by a map of ${E}_{2}$ ring spectra.
