Six mitochondrial genome sequences, showing strong similarity to the glucocorticoid responsive element consensus sequence (GRE), four localized within the cytochrome c oxidase (COX) subunit I and II genes (GREs I-IV) and two within the D-loop region (GREs a and b) have been examined as binding sites of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) from rat liver cytosol.(More)
Glucocorticoid receptors have been detected in 90 human breast tumors and tumor-like conditions by the immunoperoxidase method using a specific antibody against the glucocorticoid receptor isolated from rat thymocytes. In some of the specimens the [3H]-dexamethasone binding assay was also performed and the results obtained were compared with those of the(More)
Glucocorticoids rapidly affect nuclear RNA synthesis by binding, as hormone-receptor complexes, to Glucocorticoid Responsive Elements (GRE), differently positioned in glucocorticoid inducible genes. Glucocorticoids also affect, within minutes, mitochondrial RNA synthesis. We therefore searched for GREs in the mitochondrial genome of human (H), rat (R) and(More)
A single copy of a glucocorticoid-responsive element (GRE) is sufficient in mediating the combinatorial response of a promoter to both glucocorticoids and insulin in HepG2 cells. This requires the presence of active glucocorticoid receptor (GR) since the response is significantly inhibited by the anti-glucocorticoid RU30406. The N'- and C'-terminal parts of(More)
DEAE Sephadex-A-50 chromatography of rat liver and thymus cytosol charged with dexamethasone (0.1 microM) and heated at 25 degrees C for 30 min, separates two main hormone--receptor complexes, one in the flow through (DE-1) and one eluting with 150 mM [Cl-] (DE-2). Incubation of these two fractions with homologous nuclei results in a 20% stimulation and a(More)
Glucocorticoid receptor (GR) induces transcriptional activation of specific genes by binding to cis-acting enhancer sequences termed glucocorticoid responsive elements (GREs). Insulin regulates gene transcription part of which is mediated sequences dominated by GREs. By transient expression in HTC cells of fusion gene consist MMTV 5' flanking sequences(More)
Two rat liver cytosol fractions containing activated glucocorticoid-receptor complexes are able to stimulate the transcriptional activity of rat liver nuclei; the respective fractions from the cytosol of thymocytes inhibit the capacity of thymus nuclei for RNA synthesis. A similar inhibitory effect on thymus nuclei is exerted by the presence of rat liver(More)
