Estrogen receptor (ER), which mediates the multiple effects of estrogen in brain, is regulated by several factors including its own ligand. In the present study, we have examined the effect of age, sex and gonadal steroids (estrogen and testosterone) on the level of ERalpha and ERbeta in the cerebral cortex of AKR mice. Adult and old mice of both sexes were(More)
Estrogen actions are mainly mediated by estrogen receptor (ER)alpha and ERbeta which in turn are regulated by several factors including age, sex and gonadal steroid hormones 17beta-estradiol and testosterone. In the present study, we have used nuclear run-off assay to examine the effect of these factors on the rate of transcription of ERalpha and ERbeta of(More)
BACKGROUND Familial glucocorticoid deficiency (FGD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterised by isolated glucocorticoid deficiency. Mutations in the ACTH receptor/melanocortin 2 receptor (MC2R), the MC2R accessory protein (MRAP) or the STAR protein (STAR) cause FGD types 1, 2 and 3, respectively, accounting for ~50% of all cases.
