Details for anatomical structure: gonads

EndoNet ID: ENC00579

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/hormone/ENH00000

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

        Receptors

        • Receptor: melatonin 1 receptor

          Induced phenotype:

          • androgen production
            • Melatonin modulates androgen production at level of gonads. [1]
        • Receptor: steroidogenic factor 1

          • The presence of potential SF-l binding sites in the promoter regions of nonadrenal steroidogenic enzymes and the expression of SF-1 in ovary and testis suggested that SF-l might also contribute to steroidogenic enzyme gene expression in gonadal tissue [2]

          Induced phenotype:

          • steroidogenesis
            • SF-1 is a master regulator of steroidogenesis whose expression is critical for normal adrenal and gonadal organogenesis. Strict maintenance of SF-1 levels is essential, and mutations causing under- or overexpression result in congenital adrenal and gonadal defects or hyperplasia, respectively [3]
