In the past few years, besides the classical genomic effects of steroid hormones, a plethora of so called rapid non genomic effects have been described in different cell types, which are too rapid to be due to activation of gene expression. Although some of these effects might involve the same nuclear steroid receptors acting on different cellular signalling, others have been ascribed to poorly characterized membrane receptors. Several rapid nongenomic effects of progesterone (P) and estrogens… Expand
