Differential recruitment of steroid hormone response elements may dictate the expression of the pituitary gonadotropin II beta subunit gene during salmon maturation.


The role of testosterone (T) and 17 beta-estradiol (E2) in the control of chinook salmon gonadotropin II beta subunit (sGTHII beta) gene was examined. Both E2 and T specifically stimulated GTHII beta gene expression in cultured juvenile rainbow trout pituitary cells. 5'-Flanking regions of the sGTHII beta gene linked to the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase… (More)
