The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that mediates most of the toxic and endocrine-disruptive actions of aromatic compounds in the ovary. Paradoxically, this receptor has been shown to play important roles in normal female reproductive function as well. Although knowledge of AHR expression regulation in the ovary is of crucial significance to understand the receptor biology and its function in reproductive physiology, there are only limited data in this… CONTINUE READING
