androgen receptors

androgen receptors

Molecules on the surface of cells that bind androgens and bring about their effects within the cells. They are specific GLYCOPROTEINS coded for by genes on the X chromosome.

Acne is one of the commonest dermatological disorders with a prevalence of 22%1 It is a disease of the pilosebaceous follicle with presence in 70-95% of dermatological patients.2 Endocrine mechanisms control the components of sebocyte function-namely lipid synthesis, proliferation and differentiation.3 Androgens upregulate sebaceous gland function by binding to the nuclear androgen receptors (ARs).
