What do we need to know about these hormones for DAT? Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.

Steroid hormones on the other hand, will travel to the nucleus and have major effects. Insulin is an example of a peptide hormone, and a typical steroid hormone is testosterone.
May 28, Messages: DR HOYA - is the reason that steroids are able to travel directly to the nucleus because they are lipid-soluble and are able to pass through the lipid bilayer membrane of the cell?
Mar 2, Messages: May 27, Messages: Hey Guys, steroid hormone does cross the lipid bilayaer because it is hydrophobic, however it also binds to the receptor inside the cytoplasm.
This steroid hormone-receptor interaction is what gets steroid into the nucleus and allows it to bind to DNA to initiate transcription. Peptide hormone, like insulin, has charges on it so therefore cannot cross the lipid bilayer by itself and therefore needs to bind to the receptor on the cell membrane and initiate a signaling cascade using GPCRs and cAMP.
As thge matter of fact if a molecule has a charge it cannot cross a lipid bilayer by itself. Jul 27, Messages: Steroid hormones freely enter their target cells after combining with an intracellular receptor, they exert a direct influence on the transcription of mRNA.
They do directly influence the transcription by binding to the DNA of their taget cells and promoting transcription of specific genes. Peptide hormones combine with receptor molecules on the surface of their target cells' membrane. These hormones do not influence the transcription of mRNA directly and in other words, peptide hormones do not enter the nucleus of their target cells and activate transcription.
Apr 12, Messages: Peptide hormones are lipophobic hydrophilic , usually charged and therefore cannot cross the plasma membrane Due to this property, they're receptors are usually found on plasma membrane The main thing to get out of peptide hormones is that small amounts of hormone can influence a huge change due to cascade phosphorylation. Jan 11, Messages: Fsh, lh, adh, and tsh I think are steroids. Ph and gh are peptides i think someone correct me if im wrong.
