Anti-Progesterone Receptor


Progesterone receptor (PR) is a 946 amino acid ligand-activated transcription factor that belongs to the steroid super family of nuclear receptors. It is plays a central role in reproductive events associated with the establishment and maintenance of pregnancy. Human progesterone receptor (PR) is expressed as two forms: the full length 120 kDa protein (PR-B) and the short form 94 kDa protein (PR-A). The expression of progesterone receptor is observed in female sex steroid responsive tissues such as mammary gland, ovary and uterus but also found in other tissues such as endocrine cells of Langerhans islets. Progesterone Receptor is useful for predicting recurrence and survival of breast cancer patients by measuring the relative level of expression of progesterone receptor in breast cancer tissue.
