Ad4BP was identified as an essential transcription factor regulating steroidogenic cell-specific and cAMP-dependent transcription of the genes of steroidogenic P450s. The Ad4BP transcript was detected in steroidogenic tissues such as adrenal gland, testis, ovary, placenta and brain by RT-PCR, and showed good correlation with the expression of steroidogenic… CONTINUE READING
