The human progesterone receptor (PR) is a ligand-activated nuclear transcription factor that mediates progesterone action in target tissues. Two PR proteins, PR-A (M(r) 81,000-83,000) and PR-B (M(r) 116,000-120,000), have been described and different physiological activities ascribed to each on the basis of in vitro studies, suggesting that their ratio of(More)

BACKGROUND Activation of hepatic CB(1) receptors (CB(1)) is associated with steatosis and fibrosis in experimental forms of liver disease. However, CB(1) expression has not been assessed in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC), a disease associated with insulin resistance, steatosis and metabolic disturbance. We aimed to determine the importance and(More)
