Abstract

Steroid hormones are important physiological regulators in the body. Steroid hormones are mainly synthesized in the adrenal and gonads. Their synthesis is stimulated by pituitary hormones through cAMP as an intracellular mediator. The first and rate-limiting step for steroid biosynthesis is catalyzed by CYP11A1. Important regulatory elements for the control of the CYP11A1 gene expression have been characterized both in vitro and in vivo. The SF-1-binding sites are cis-acting elements controlling the basal and cAMP-stimulated gene expression. Our transgenic mouse studies showed that the 2.3kb promoter contains information controlling developmentally regulated gene expression. Finally, we present our results on the cloning of steroidogenic genes in zebrafish, a new model organism for genetic studies.
