This segment discusses inflammation, steroidogenesis (the Steroid Tree), and summarizes the talk.
Takemori H, Horike N, Doi J, Muraoka M, et al. (2004) Salt-inducible kinase (SIK) isoforms: their involvement in steroidogenesis and adipogenesis.
Thus far, the best characterized FOXL2 target genes are involved in steroidogenesis: the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHr), the alpha subunit of the gonadotropins (Cga), and the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR)  - 
Testosterone production was induced either by activators of the cAMP/PKA pathway (hCG and dbcAMP) or substrates of steroidogenesis [22 (R) - hydroxy-cholesterol (22 (R) - OH-C), which is a substrate for the P450scc enzyme, and pregnenolone, which is the product of the P450scc-catalyzed step]
The cellular influx of cholesterol provides precursor for intratumoral steroidogenesis after castration.
Progestins Indication: If pills is contraindicated or unwanted Mechanism: inhibit ov steroidogenesis, inc clearance of androgen, inhibit 5 alpha reductase dec SHBG: inc FT Dose: DMPA: 150 mg IM / 3 mo.
Oral contraceptive pills The first line of therapy Mechanism: P: suppress ov steroidogenesis E: inc SHBG: dec FT
Taken together, these results indicate that the chick CAM has the molecular mechanisms in place to perform steroidogenesis in general and P4 synthesis in particular.
In both theca and granulosa cells, NR5A1 regulates genes required for ovarian steroidogenesis and follicle growth and maturation, including, STAR, CYP11A1, CYP17A1, CYP19A1
His studies of the mechanisms that regulate steroidogenesis led to the isolation of NR5A1.
