Abstract

We demonstrate that the 204 bp intronic gene fragment of C3(1), which has a specific in vitro affinity for the androgen receptor, is able to confer androgen responsiveness to a heterologous promoter. This characteristic is completely destroyed by a single G----T substitution, affecting a 5'-TGTTCT-3' element that closely resembles the consensus sequence of the glucocorticoid and progesterone response elements (GRE/PRE). In fact we could show that this androgen response element (ARE) also acts as a similarly weak GRE or PRE in T-47D cells.
