The sequence of a splice variant of the rat mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) gene is presented. A cDNA clone corresponding to rat MR was isolated from a rat brain cDNA library. Sequence analysis of the region corresponding to the DNA binding domain revealed the presence of a 12 base pair (bp) insertion. Analysis of mRNA from several rat tissues suggests that the variant is less abundant than the wild type in most tissues. The insertion variant is also a product of the human MR gene, the… Expand
An alternatively spliced rat mineralocorticoid receptor mRNA causing truncation of the steroid binding domain
TLDR
An alternatively spliced variant mRNA of the rat mineralocorticoid (MR) with a ten bp deletion in the C-terminal steroid binding domain is identified, which results in a truncated MR receptor of 807 amino acids in comparison to the wild type of 981 amino acids. Expand
Differential mRNA Expression of the Two Mineralocorticoid Receptor Splice Variants Within the Human Brain: Structure Analysis of their Different DNA Binding Domains
TLDR
An MR+4 DNA‐binding‐domain structure model was generated by computer‐based homology modelling based on the known glucocorticoid receptor structure and revealed no distorting effect of the inserted four amino acids on the adjacent secondary structures, thereby suggesting that both zinc ®ngers retain their function. Expand
Function of human mineralocorticoid receptor splice variant.
TLDR
A mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) splice variant with a 12 bp insertion coding for a protein with four additional amino acids (MRþ4) shows no functional difference to the MR without insertion is compared to transactivation mediated by MR and MR þ4. Expand
Mineralocorticoid receptor splice variants in different human tissues.
TLDR
MR-mRNA was found in all samples investigated, thereby showing the expression of MR to be more abundant than has been observed thus far and implying additional modes of MR-regulated effects. Expand
Human mineralocorticoid receptor A and B protein forms produced by alternative translation sites display different transcriptional activities.
TLDR
Data indicate that MR is expressed, through alternative translation initiation, as distinct protein variants which possess different functional properties, which could tightly dictate the modulation of aldosterone responsiveness in various tissues or in pathophysiological situations. Expand
Identification of a splice variant of the rat estrogen receptor β gene
TLDR
A second estrogen receptor termed estrogen receptor β (ERβ) has been cloned and characterized, and shown to be expressed at the highest levels in ovarian granulosa cells and prostatic epithelium, and a second transcript appears to arise through differential splicing. Expand
A new human MR splice variant is a ligand-independent transactivator modulating corticosteroid action.
TLDR
A new human MR isoform, hMRDelta5,6, resulting from an alternative splicing event skipping exons 5 and 6 of the human MR gene is identified, suggesting that this new variant might play a role in modulating corticosteroid effects in target tissues. Expand
Peptide insertion in the DNA-binding domain of fish glucocorticoid receptor is encoded by an additional exon and confers particular functional properties
TLDR
This original DBD structure could have emerged during evolution such as to allow better regulation of glucocorticoid dependent genes in relation to the large spectrum of cortisol physiological functions in fish. Expand
Structural analysis of the DNA-binding domain of alternatively spliced steroid receptors.
TLDR
A close correspondence is obtained between the molecular modeling-based predictions and the conclusions of receptor function drawn from in vitro studies. Expand
New naturally occurring missense mutations of the human mineralocorticoid receptor disclose important residues involved in dynamic interactions with deoxyribonucleic acid, intracellular trafficking, and ligand binding.
TLDR
The results and the three-dimensional modeling of the interaction of R633 with DNA suggest that altered interaction dynamics with DNA as well as modified intracellular localization may be responsible for submaximal transcriptional potency of hMR. Expand

A Functional Promoter Directing Expression of a Novel Type of Rat Mineralocorticoid Receptor mRNA in Brain
TLDR
It is demonstrated that expression of the rat MR gene in the hippocampus results in at least two transcripts with different 5′‐untranslated exons, and sequence information together with the nucleotide sequences upstream of one of the exons provide a valuable tool to elucidate the mechanisms involved in the tissue‐specific regulation of theRat MR gene.

Molecular cloning of a mineralocorticoid (type I) receptor complementary DNA from rat hippocampus.
TLDR
The isolation and characterization of a cDNA coding for the MR is described, from a rat hippocampus cDNA library, by low stringency hybridization to radiolabeled human glucocorticoid receptor cDNA, to support the contention that a single gene gives rise to the MR in renal tissues and type I receptors in the brain.

TLDR
It is suggested from data that a complex mechanism involving transcription and translation regulates MR expression in the rat hippocampus, and it is concluded that multiple MR mRNAs are differentially expressed in theRat hippocampus. Expand

TLDR
Together the hMR and hGR provide unexpected functional diversity in which hormone-binding properties, target gene interactions, and patterns of tissue-specific expression may be used in a combinatorial fashion to achieve complex physiologic control. Expand

The structure of the 42-kilobase (kb) long chicken progesterone receptor (cPR) gene and of all six transcripts that are detectable on Northern blots was determined and the primary sequence of more than 2 kb upstream sequences of the cPR gene, containing several consensus hexamer progestin/glucocorticoid receptor-binding sites (PRE/GRE and putative Sp1 binding motifs, is discussed.

TLDR
The conservation of the RAR-gamma isoforms from mouse to human together with their patterns of expression suggests that they perform specific functions, which may account for the pleiotropic effect of retinoic acid in embryogenesis and development. Expand
Multiple isoforms of the mouse retinoic acid receptor alpha are generated by alternative splicing and differential induction by retinoic acid.
TLDR
The conservation between mouse and human RAR‐alpha 1 and alpha 2 cDNA isoform sequences, as seen by cross‐hybridization in Southern blots or by DNA sequence analysis, strongly suggests that they perform specific functions during embryogenesis and in the adult. Expand
Differentially expressed isoforms of the mouse retinoic acid receptor beta generated by usage of two promoters and alternative splicing.
TLDR
The conservation of RAR‐beta isoform sequences from mouse to human, as seen by cross‐hybridization on Southern blots or DNA sequence analysis, as well as their differential patterns of expression in various mouse tissues, corroborates this view. Expand

Using site-directed mutagenesis, it is demonstrated that these two proteins arise by alternate initiation of translation from two in-phase AUG codons located on a single mRNA transcript. Expand
