Ligand Dependent Transcription of Retinoid-Target
Retinoid receptors are asymmetrically oriented Retinoic acid receptor (RAR)/ Retinoid
X receptor (RXR) heterodimers that bind to specific DNA sequences or Retinoic acid
response elements (RAREs) in the promoters ...
Prolactin is a polypeptide hormone secreted by the
pituitary gland and to a lesser extent by numerous extrapituitary tissues. This hormone
affects a great amount of physiological processes . Numerous biological
functions have ...
Endogenous and exogenous estrogens undergo oxidative metabolism by hepatic microsomal
cytochrome P-450. Aromatic hydroxylation at either the C2 or C4 position is a major route
of Estradiol metabolism in humans and other mammals,
although there is less 4-hydroxylation ...
Androgen is the active metabolic product,
5alpha-Dihydrotestosterone, which is produced from the
transformation of Testosterone catalyzed by the
Steroid-5-alpha-reductase, alpha polypeptides 1 and 2 (S5AR1
and S5AR2) [
