Control of gene expression by steroid hormones
Reproduction nutrition development (Print)
The mechanism of action of steroid hormones involves their interaction with tissue-specific binding sites, and results in a precise modulation of gene expression. Both high-affinity receptors and secondary binding sites exist for steroid hormones in target tissues. Only steroid-receptor complexes were, in several cases, clearly shown to directly regulate transcription by interacting with DNA region(s) close to steroid-controlled genes. However other indications suggest that steroid hormonesdoi:10.1051/rnd:19860701 fatcat:evxljdupyjhnhjjvosibdbzpyq
