Receptors progesterone

receptors, progesterone

specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, a and b. Both are induced by oestrogen and have short half-lives.
