The nerve growth factor-induced clone B (NGFI-B) family of transcription factors are orphan members of the steroid hormone receptor superfamily. The NGFI-B expression was recently shown in the rat ovarian tissue and appears to be regulated by gonadotrophins. The purpose of our study was to investigate the role of the three members of this family [NGFI-B,(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), members of the transforming growth factor beta superfamily, were recently shown to be expressed and to regulate steroidogenesis in rat ovarian tissue. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of BMP-4 on androgen production in a human ovarian theca-like tumor (HOTT) cell culture model. We have previously(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of TGFbeta1 on steroidogensis and expression of the steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein which regulates an important early step in the steroidogenic pathway. We utilized a human ovarian thecal like tumor (HOTT) cell model and investigated the effects of activin-A, inhibin-A, or TGFbeta1 in the presence of(More)
