Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin as a Modulator of the Prostate “Androgenome”
Sex hormone-binding globulin is a sex steroid binding protein, originally described in humans as the major binding protein for estrogens and androgens in plasma, which regulates the availability of the latter to hormonally responsive tissues.
Sex hormone-binding globulin provides a novel entry pathway for estradiol and influences subsequent signaling in lymphocytes via membrane receptor
It is found that human and mouse T cells expressed SHBG intrinsically and the SHBG-SHBG receptor-membrane ER complex participates in the rapid estradiol signaling in lymphocytes, and this pathway may be altered in B cells in pregnant women.
Sex hormone binding globulin and insulin resistance
Genetic studies using Mendelian randomization analysis linking three single nucleotide polymorphisms of the SHBG gene to risk of developing type 2 DM suggest SHBG may have a role in the pathogenesis of type 1 DM and several potential mechanisms may account for this association.
Plasma steroid-binding proteins: primary gatekeepers of steroid hormone action

Understanding how the unique structures of SHBG and CBG determine their specialized functions, how changes in their plasma levels are controlled, and how they function outside the blood circulation provides insight into how they control the freedom of steroids to act in health and disease.
Classic and Novel Sex Hormone Binding Globulin Effects on the Cardiovascular System in Men
The description of local expression of cardiac SHBG and its circulating levels may shed new light to explain physiological and adverse cardiometabolic roles of androgens in different tissues.
Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin and the Metabolic Syndrome
This chapter reviews the biochemical and molecular properties of SHBG and its role in the regulation of androgen and estrogen action; the molecular mechanisms that control the hepatic production of plasma SHBG, and how these are dysregulated in MetS patients.
Sex hormone-binding globulin regulation of androgen bioactivity in vivo: validation of the free hormone hypothesis
Despite markedly raised total sex steroid concentrations, free testosterone was unaffected while sex steroid bioactivity on male and female reproductive organs was attenuated, and this occurred via a ligand-dependent, genotype-independent mechanism according to in vitro seminal vesicle organ cultures.
Associations of testosterone and sex hormone binding globulin with adipose tissue hormones in midlife women
The associations between testosterone (T) and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) with leptin, high molecular weight (HMW) adiponectin, and the soluble form of the leptin receptor (sOB‐R) in healthy midlife women are assessed.


[Interaction of blood sex steroid-binding globulin with cell membranes of human decidual tissue].
It was shown that SHBG complexed with estradiol specifically interacts with these membranes; such serum globulins as albumin, orosomucoid, transferrin, transcortin and the thyroxine-binding globulin do not compete with SHBG for the binding sites on the membranes.
Sex Hormone-binding Globulin in the Human Prostate Is Locally Synthesized and May Act as an Autocrine/Paracrine Effector*
It is demonstrated that SHBG is produced in human prostate cancer cell lines as well as in cultured human prostate epithelial and stromal cells, consistent with the hypothesis thatSHBG, destined to participate in signaling at the cell membrane, is locally regulated and produced.
Prostatic distribution of sex hormone-binding globulin and cortisol-binding globulin in benign hyperplasia.
Epithelial tissue was separated from stroma and found not to contain the SHBG- or CBG-like proteins, however, substantial amounts of these proteins remained associated with the stroma, suggesting that they may be constituents of interstitial fluid in this tissue compartment.
The hepatic receptor for sex steroid-binding protein: study on a non-malignant cell line (Chang liver).
SBP was shows to recognize two binding sites with different affinities; the low affinity site was shown to possess a remarkably high capacity, which could be related to the unique role of the liver with regard to both SBP and sex steroids.
