The transfer of cholesterol from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane, where side-chain cleavage occurs to form pregnenolone, is a crucial event in the regulation of steroidogenesis and recently has been demonstrated to bemediated by steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR). We generated a partial porcine StAR complementary DNA (280 bp) by RT-PCR and used the corresponding antisense riboprobe to quantify the control of StAR gene expression by FSH and insulin-like growth factor I… CONTINUE READING
