The role of SF1 in adrenal and reproductive function: insight from naturally occurring mutations in humans.

Steroidogenic factor 1 is a monomeric orphan nuclear receptor and one of several hundreds of transcription factors encoded in the human genome. It regulates the transcription of many genes involved in gonadal development, sexual differentiation, steroidogenesis and reproduction. Recently, mutations in the gene encoding SF1 have been identified in several… (More)
