Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) are involved in numerous diverse biological processes such as growth and differentiation, thermogenesis, neurulation, homeostasis, and metamorphosis. In zebrafish, TRbeta1 has been implicated to be involved in the obligatory embryonic-to-larval transitory phase. In order to understand if nuclear receptor coactivators could modulate the transcriptional activities of TRs during this transitory phase, the transcriptionary intermediary factor 2 (TIF2), a member of… Expand

Characterization of two functional glucocorticoid receptors in the marine medaka Oryzias dancena.
Transfection of odGR1 or odGR2 expression vectors into COS-7 cells along with a reporter vector demonstrated that cortisol and dexamethasone dose-dependently induce transcriptional activity in both GRs, indicating that the two odGRs possess distinct features not only for ligand sensitivity but also for preferential coregulator recruitment.

Differential recruitment of co-regulatory proteins to the human estrogen receptor 1 in response to xenoestrogens.
High-throughput receptor affinity binding and co-regulatory protein recruitment screening assays based on fluorescence polarization and time resolved florescence resonance energy transfer reveal differential binding affinity of bisphenol-A and genistein to the human ERα (ESR1) and ligand-dependent recruitment of SRC-1 and S RC-3 peptides.

Fsi zebrafish show concordant reversal of laterality of viscera, neuroanatomy, and a subset of behavioral responses, as well as implications for the evolution of posterior brain segmentation at the invertebrate-to-vertebrate transition. Expand


Structure and chromosomal locations of mouse steroid receptor coactivator gene family
The structure of mouse SRC-3 gene is defined and it is found that the genes in the SRC family are located in different mouse chromosomes, important for developing valuable animal models harboring multiple disruptions of the S RC gene family to study their biological functions. Expand
Distinct expression profiles of transcriptional coactivators for thyroid hormone receptors during Xenopus laevis metamorphosis
Results support the view that these coactivators participate in gene regulation by TR during metamorphosis, and SRC2 and p300 are expressed throughout postembryonic development with little change in their expression levels. Expand
Review of the in vivo functions of the p160 steroid receptor coactivator family.
This minireview summarizes the current knowledge about the molecular structures, molecular mechanisms, temporal and spatial expression patterns, and biological functions of the SRC family and discusses possible mechanisms for functional specificity and redundancy among SRCfamily members. Expand
Temporal expression and T3 induction of thyroid hormone receptors α1 and β1 during early embryonic and larval development in zebrafish, Danio rerio
The cloning and characterization of a TR beta1 cDNA from zebrafish showed that there is a single genomic locus for the TR beta gene, while the TR alpha gene potentially has two loci, and multiple TR alpha and TR beta transcripts were detected in adult tissues. Expand
Cloning and functional characterization of chicken p160 coactivator family members.
The cloning of the chicken homologues of p160 coactivators is reported, which describes an imperfect LXXLL sequence, termed NR box 4, which is located downstream of NR box 3 and conserved between evolutionarily diverse species. Expand
The steroid receptor coactivator, GRIP-1, is necessary for MEF-2C-dependent gene expression and skeletal muscle differentiation.
It is demonstrated that GRIP-1 potentiates skeletal muscle differentiation by acting as a critical coactivator for MEF-2C-mediated transactivation and is the first study to ascribe a function to the amino-terminal bHLH-PAS region of SRCs. Expand
Temporal formation of distinct thyroid hormone receptor coactivator complexes in HeLa cells.
Using a stable TR-expressing HeLa cell line, interaction of TR with members of the p160/SRC family, CBP, and the p300/CBP-associated factor (PCAF) occurs rapidly following addition of thyroid hormone (T3). Expand
The coregulator exchange in transcriptional functions of nuclear receptors.
Based on their importance in biology and medicine, as well as the relatively simple mechanism of regulation, NR represent one of the most intensively studied and best-understood classes of transcription factors at the molecular level. Expand
Thyroid hormone inhibits thyrotropin gene expression via a position-independent negative L-triiodothyronine-responsive element.
An element in the rTSH beta gene that mediates negative regulation by T3 and binds to the T3R is identified and is an intrinsic property of the T2-responsive element and not dependent on position relative to the promoter. Expand
Ff1b is required for the development of steroidogenic component of the zebrafish interrenal organ.
It is proposed that ff1b is required for the development of the steroidogenic tissue of the interrenal organ in zebrafish and could be mimicked by treatment with aminoglutethimide, an inhibitor of de novo steroid synthesis. Expand
