1976). In general, there is a similar amount and distribution of AR in male and female genital skin (Griffin et al. 1976; Mowszowicz et al. 1981). 41 42 C. A. S Ontogeny of AR expression in fetal and postnatal life Expression of AR in the human fetus is present even prior to the onset of testicular androgen secretion and androgen binding is greater in genital than non-genital tissues during weeks 8-22 of gestation (Sultan et al. 1980, 1982). There is a marked similarity in distribution and intensity of AR staining in the external genitalia of male and female fetuses at 18-22 weeks gestation (Kalloo et al.
1991). 3 Androgen receptor protein The AR is a member of the group of four closely-related steroid receptors that also includes the progesterone receptor (PR), glucocorticoid receptor 37 38 c. A. Quigley (GR) and mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) - sometimes referred to as the "GR-like" receptors. These four receptors, related by their sequence homology and also by their ability to activate target gene transcription via the same HRE, comprise a sub-group of the larger and more diverse family of nuclear transcription factors that includes the estrogen receptor (ER), thyroid hormone receptors (TRa and TRf3), vitamin D receptor (VDR), retinoic acid receptor (RAR), retinoid X receptor (RXR), and a number of related receptors for which ligands have not yet been identified in many cases.
