Steroid hormones influence the transcription of a large number of genes by virtue of their interaction with intracellular receptors, which are modular proteins composed of a ligand binding domain, a DNA binding domain, and several transactivation functions distributed along the molecule. The DNA binding domain is organized around two zinc ions and allows the receptors to bind as homodimers to palindromic DNA sequences, the hormones responsive elements (HRE), is such a way that each homodimer… Expand
The Androgen Receptor Amino-Terminal Domain Plays a Key Role in p160 Coactivator-Stimulated Gene Transcription
TLDR
The functional interactions between the androgen receptor (AR) and 160-kDa nuclear receptor coactivators are analyzed and suggest that in the native AR the efficient recruitment of coactivator requires a functional association of the NTD with the LBD and that the binding of coActivators occurs primarily through the N TD.

Glucocorticoid Receptor Structure and Function
Glucocorticoids are essential hormones for life and among the most potent anti-inflammatory agents, which regulate most of their biological effects at the level of gene regulation by binding to theExpand
Glucocorticoid receptors and other nuclear transcription factors in mitochondria and possible functions.
TLDR
In addition to the steroid/thyroid hormone receptors, several other receptors belonging to the superfamily of nuclear receptors, as well as transcription factors with well defined nuclear actions, have been found in mitochondria. Expand
Interaction between the Retinoid X Receptor and Transcription Factor IIB Is Ligand-dependent in Vivo *
TLDR
Functional analysis and co-immunoprecipitation, far Western analysis, and glutathioneS-transferase binding studies indicate that interaction of mRXRβ with TFIIB is specific, direct, and ligand-dependent in vivo and suggest that gene activation by RXR involvesTFIIB. Expand
Nuclear matrix and steroid hormone action.
TLDR
This chapter describes the different aspects of nuclear matrix and steroid hormone action and identifies several ATP-dependent multiprotein complexes that may help transcriptional activators overcome chromatin-mediated repression. Expand
Auto-silencing by the retinoid X receptor.
TLDR
It is proposed that RXR acts as an auto-silencer by sequestering itself into tetramers, and that an important role for the ligand in activating this receptor is to release active species, dimers and monomers, from the transcriptionally inactive tetrameric pool. Expand
The Classic Steroid Hormone Receptors and ERβ, the Novel Estrogen Receptor
Steroid hormones control diverse biological functions, such as growth and development, regulation of immune functions, and cell death (1). The regulation of gene transcription by steroid hormones isExpand
Potentiation of glucocorticoid receptor transcriptional activity by sumoylation.
TLDR
A model in which SUMO-1 regulates the synergy control function of GR and serves as a unique signal for activation and destruction is proposed, largely exceeding those observed so far for other sumoylated transcription factors. Expand
Rapid steroid hormone actions via membrane receptors.
TLDR
This new approach lends insight into rapid signaling by steroid hormones and its potential for use in targeted drug therapies that maximize the benefits of traditional steroid hormone-directed therapies while mitigating their less desirable effects. Expand
Formation of a powerful capping motif corresponding to start of “helix 12” in agonist-bound estrogen receptor-α contributes to increased constitutive activity of the protein

TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that formation of a powerful capping motif that corresponds to the start of helix 12 in the agonist-bound receptor contributes to activation of the hERα. Expand

Transcriptional control by steroid hormones: the role of chromatin.
TLDR
It is implied that nucleosome positioning not only represses hormone-independent transcription, but also enables binding of a full complement of transcription factors to the hormone-responsive unit after hormone induction. Expand
Gene regulation by steroid hormones
TLDR
The location, orientation, and structure of the hormone regulatory elements (HRE) in nine hormonally modulated genes is described and a model for the interaction is proposed in which a dimer of the receptor in head-to-head orientation binds to the inverted symmetry element of the HRE. Expand
A nuclear hormone receptor-associated protein that inhibits transactivation by the thyroid hormone and retinoic acid receptors.
TLDR
Yeast two-hybrid system identifies a protein, thyroid hormone receptor uncoupling protein (TRUP), that specifically interacts with a region of the human thyroid hormone receptors consisting of the hinge region and the N-terminal portion of the ligand binding domain in a hormone-independent manner. Expand
Interaction of proteins with transcriptionally active estrogen receptors.
TLDR
Since the ability of these proteins to interact with the hormone binding domain correlates with its transcriptional activity, one or more of them may contribute to hormone-dependent transcriptional activation by the estrogen receptor. Expand
Interaction of thyroid-hormone receptor with a conserved transcriptional mediator
TLDR
It is shown that Tripl can functionally substitute for Sugl in yeast, and that both proteins interact in vitro with the thyroid-hormone receptor, and with the transcriptional activation domains of yeast GAL4 and of herpes virus VP16. Expand
The DNA-bending protein HMG-1 enhances progesterone receptor binding to its target DNA sequences.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the high-mobility-group chromatin protein H MG-1, as a highly purified protein, dramatically enhanced binding of purified PR to PREs in gel mobility shift assays, suggesting that HMG-1 facilitates the binding of PR by inducing a structural change in the target DNA. Expand
Identification of a Transactivation Function in the Progesterone Receptor That Interacts with the TAFII110 Subunit of the TFIID Complex (*)
TLDR
In cotransfection experiments and an in vitro transcription assay, the DNA binding domain of the progesterone receptor displayed significant activation potential, suggesting that an interaction between the progestersone receptor and TAFII110 may represent an important step in the mechanism of activation. Expand
Nuclear factor I acts as a transcription factor on the MMTV promoter but competes with steroid hormone receptors for DNA binding.
TLDR
Results suggest that, though NFI acts as a transcription factor on the MMTV promoter, transcriptional activation does not take place through a direct facilitation of DNA binding of NFI by steroid hormone receptors. Expand
Hormone induces binding of receptors and transcription factors to a rearranged nucleosome on the MMTV promoter in vivo.
TLDR
Using genomic footprinting, it is shown that MMTV promoter DNA is rotationally phased in intact cells containing either episomal or chromosomally integrated proviral fragments and all relevant transcription factors bind to the surface of the rearranged nucleosome. Expand
Estrogen regulation of proto-oncogenes coding for nuclear proteins.
TLDR
Data indicating that estrogen directly activates (primary activation) expression of proto-oncogenes codifying for nuclear proteins that, in turn, are responsible for indirect activation of other genes are reviewed to envisage how estrogen can direct a complex task such as cell reproduction. Expand
