Proteasome-mediated mineralocorticoid receptor degradation attenuates transcriptional response to aldosterone.


The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway regulates the turnover of many nuclear hormone receptors, such as the estrogen receptor. For estrogen receptor, proteasome inhibition decreases ligand-mediated transcription. We provide evidence that the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) is degraded by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway in a ligand-dependent manner and that… (More)
