Abstract

Steroid hormones, via their binding to specific receptors, are involved in the development, differentiation, and physiological response of cells to diverse stimuli. Activation by hormonal ligands induces conformational change in the receptor, enabling interaction with the target genes. The steroid receptor superfamily includes androgen, glucocorticoid, mineralocorticoid, progesterone, estrogen, thyroid, vitamin D, retinoic acid, and orphan receptors. This review will focus on the classic steroid receptors, i.e., the androgen, glucocorticoid, progesterone, and estrogen receptors, with emphasis on their transcriptional regulation. Readers are directed to several authoritative reviews for further details of steroid receptors are directed to several authoritative reviews for further details of steroid receptors (1-11).
