Expression of size-polymorphic androgen receptor (AR) gene in ovarian endometriosis according to the number of cytosine, adenine, and guanine (CAG) repeats in AR alleles.

An increase in androgen receptor (AR) caused by estrogen is recognized as one of the biological phenomena related to estrogen-induced growth in uterine endometrium. The A/B region of AR gene in X chromosome involves the cytosine, adenine, and guanine (CAG) repeats. Random X chromosome inactivation with AR alleles in individual cells occurs in females… CONTINUE READING
