The action of estrogen in the female reproductive organs is well known in terms of the expression pattern and gene regulation of the estrogen receptor (ER). The significance of ERs in female reproduction is undisputed. The role of the androgen receptor (AR) is less clear. Clinical hyperandrogenism, a typical feature of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS),(More)
Estrogen-related receptor alpha (ERRalpha) is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily and regulates many physiological functions, including mitochondrial biogenesis and lipid metabolism. ERRalpha enhances the transactivation function without endogenous ligand by associating with coactivators such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma(More)
Estrogen receptor (ER) is a hormone-inducible transcription factor as a member of the nuclear receptor gene superfamily. Unliganded ER is transcriptionally silent and capable of DNA binding; however, it is unable to suppress the basal activity of the target gene promoters, unlike non-steroid hormone receptors that associate with corepressors in the absence(More)
