Progesterone Receptors (Progesterone Receptor) Summary

Description: 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 estrogen and have short half-lives.

Also Known As: Progesterone Receptor; Receptors, Progesterone; Receptor, Progesterone; Progestin Receptors; Receptors, Progestin
