The adrenocorticotropic hormone receptor or ACTH receptor also known as the melanocortin receptor 2 or MC 2 receptor is a type of melanocortin receptor (type 2) which is specific for ACTH. A G protein–coupled receptor located on the external cell plasma membrane, it is coupled to G αs and upregulates levels of cAMP by activating adenylyl cyclase.

The ACTH receptor plays a role in Aliases: MC2R, ACTHR, melanocortin 2 receptor. The effects of ACTH on ACTH-receptor expression is dependent on cAMP, probably mediated through AP The profound effect of three SFbinding sites in the ACTH-receptor promoter was demonstrated by deletion experiments.

Conversely, ACTH-receptor expression can be suppressed by adrenal-specific transcription factors,like DAXCited by: SF-1 plays an essential role in the organogenesis of the fetal adrenal gland and also in regulating genes that code for steroidogenic enzymes.

SF-1 stimulates the promoter activities of genes encoding steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein, the scavenger receptor-type class BI (SR-BI), and the ACTH receptor. The ACTH receptor, or MC2-R, is expressed almost exclusively in the cortex of the adrenal glands, where it regulates synthesis and release of glucocorticoids in response to release of ACTH by the pituitary gland.

ACTH also has long-term effects on the growth and differentiation of the cells of the adrenal. suggests that NR5A1/SF-1 is not necessary for female gonadal development, confirming the crucial role of NR5A1/ SF-1 in adrenal gland formation in both sexes.

Steroidogenic factor 1 (SF-1), an orphan nuclear receptor alternatively designated “adrenal 4-binding protein,” now known as “nuclear receptor subfamily 5 group A. cAMP play a role in steroidogenesis comes from a variety of experiments. First, upon hypophysectomy, the levels of steroidogenic enzymes decline to a cer-tain extent in rat adrenal and testis but do not dis-appear ().

Likewise, in primary cultures of bovine adrenocortical cells maintained in the ab-sence of ACTH for several days, certain of. mary cultures of adrenal cells, ACTH, an activator of HSD3B2, rapidly induced expression of NGFIB. These results suggest that NGFIB plays a crucial role in adre-nal zonation by regulating HSD3B2 gene transcription.

The enzyme 3 -hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (HSD3B2)1 is essential for the adrenal biosynthesis of miner. The melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4-R) plays a key role in the hypothalamic control of food intake, lending importance to the understanding of the mechanisms that regulate its expression.

True or False: In the direct gene activation method of hormone action, the hormone enters the target cell and binds to an intracellular receptor. The activated receptor-hormone complex then alters gene expression to produce the protein that causes the physiological responses that.

The expression of the pre-T-cell receptor is required in order to halt β- γ- and δ-chain rearrangements. C Genetic deficiencies in all of the following would impair.

cells. Conversely, ACTH, the main adrenal cortex regulator, also stimulates the cAMP/PKA signaling pathway through melanocortin 2 receptor (MC2R) [15].

These findings suggest that the expression of the Giot1 gene in the adrenal gland can be regulated by ACTH, at least partly through the intracellular. adrenal fasciculata cells by increasing the expression of several key steroidogenic enzymes (8). Additionally, ACTH is crucial for the development of the adrenal cortex and may play an essential part in adaptational processes like adrenal hypertrophy (9).

The ACTH receptor is mainly expressed in the adrenal cortex, but. SF-1 expression sites. As expected from its function as an essential regulator of steroidogenesis, SF-1 is expressed in the testes and ovaries as early as their anlages appear (figure 2).In the ovary SF-1 expression rapidly decreases during development and increases after birth [26–28].Though the placenta is a major steroid producing tissue during pregnancy, it only shows slight SF Gonadotropin-inducible ovarian transcription factor-1 (Giot1) belongs to a family of fast-responsive genes, and gonadotropins rapidly induce its expression in steroidogenic cells of ovaries and testes of rats.

Gonadal Giot1 gene expression is regulated by cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) -dependent protein kinase A pathway, with essential role of orphan nuclear receptor NR4A1. The orphan nuclear receptor Steroidogenic Factor-1 (SF-1, NR5A1) is a critical regulator of development and homeostasis of the adrenal cortex and gonads.

We recently showed that a complex containing E3 ubiquitin ligase RNF31 and the known SF-1 corepressor DAX-1 (NR0B1) interacts with SF-1 on target promoters and represses transcription of steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) and. the PKA and PKC pathways on the expression of the SF-1 gene in mouse adrenocortical cells, line Y It has also been attempted to answer the question whether or not SF-1 plays a role in the PKA-induced expression of LIPE gene encoding hormone-sensitive lipase/cholesteryl esterase, which supplies cholesterol for steroid hormone synthesis.

SF-1 activates the basic expression of these genes and additionally controls the entry of cholesterol into the cells by controlling the expression of ACTH, LDL and HDL receptors, intracellular cholesterol transporters (sterol carrier protein 2, and SCP-2) [ 16, 17] and the StAR protein (steroidogenic acute regulatory protein), which transports cholesterol from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane.

SF-1 belongs to the fushi tarazu factor-1 (FTZ-F1) subfamily of orphan nuclear receptors.

A Gene expression profiles of human fetal and adult adrenals. Marked structural and functional differences are observed between the human fetal and adult adrenal glands. Rainey et al. have contrasted human fetal (15–20 wk) and adult adrenal gene expression profiles using cDNA microarrays.

Among 69 transcripts that have a greater than fold. The negative regulators of SR-B1 include the nuclear receptor dorsal-sensitive sex adrenal hypoplasia congenital critical region on the X chromosome gene 1 (DAX-1), a protein that plays an important role in adrenal development, the Yin Yang 1 (YY1) transcription factor, which represses the activity of the SR-B1 promoter by inhibiting the.

The enzyme 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (HSD3B2) 1 is essential for the adrenal biosynthesis of miner-alocorticoids (aldosterone) and glucocorticoids (cortisol), but its expression is inversely associated with that of the adrenal androgens (DHEA) ().HSD3B2 catalyzes the oxidation and isomerization of 3β-hydroxyene (Δ 5) steroids into 3-ketoene (Δ 4) steroids, thereby.

In the adult adrenal and gonad, SF-1 plays an important role in the maintenance of the differenti-ated functions of these organs, and is essential for the expression of all steroidogenic CYPs (Parker & Schimmer, ). It is also required for the expres-sion of. The parents and an unaffected sibling were heterozygous for the mutation, indicating that this mutation acts as a true recessive allele and demonstrating the importance of gene dosage in SF-1 function.

Further molecular studies of these mutations will help to clarify the differential role of gene dosage of SF-1 in adrenal and gonadal development. Familial glucocorticoid deficiency (FGD) is an autosomal recessive syndrome of failure of adrenal cortisol responsiveness to adrenocorticotropin (ACTH).

Defects in the ACTH receptor have been suggested as a possible cause, and we have previously reported a point mutation in this gene in a family with FGD. Another tissue where modulation of DAX-1 subcellular localization may have a role during development is the pituitary gland.

For the transient gene expression studies of target promoters, mutations were introduced into full-length NR5A1/SF-1 (1–) in a pcDNA3 expression vector (Invitrogen).Adrenal gland is an endocrine organ comprising of an outer cortex and inner medulla.

These secrete various hormones that have a vital role in maintaining the normal homeostasis of the body. Lesions of adrenal cortex are quite common to encounter and most of these are related to the hormones secreted by three layers of adrenal cortex: the zona glomerulosa, the zona fasciculata, and the zona.
