Q&As (10)

Ask a question
What are the genetic and epigenetic factors that regulate AHR expression and function? 12/19/2022

The expression and function of AHR can be influenced by genetic polymorphisms, DNA methylation patterns, and histone modifications, which may have implications in individual susceptibility to environmental toxins.

How is AHR involved in skin biology and the response to environmental toxins? 09/28/2022

AHR is expressed in skin cells and plays a role in the response to environmental toxins, UV radiation, and the regulation of skin barrier function.

What is the role of AHR in embryonic development and organogenesis? 06/07/2022

AHR is essential for normal embryonic development and organogenesis. It participates in the patterning and differentiation of various organs, including the heart and vasculature.

Can AHR activation affect hormonal signaling pathways? 03/15/2022

Yes, AHR activation can interfere with hormonal signaling pathways, leading to cross-talk with estrogen receptor signaling, and affecting hormonal homeostasis.

How does AHR influence cellular proliferation and apoptosis? 12/06/2021

AHR can impact cell cycle progression and apoptosis by modulating the expression of genes involved in these processes, which can have implications in cancer biology.

What role does AHR play in the immune system and inflammation? 09/09/2021

AHR is involved in the regulation of immune responses and inflammation by affecting the differentiation and function of immune cells, such as T cells and dendritic cells.

How does AHR contribute to xenobiotic metabolism and detoxification? 06/25/2021

AHR activation induces the expression of cytochrome P450 enzymes, particularly CYP1A1 and CYP1B1, which metabolize and detoxify various environmental pollutants and xenobiotics.

What are the downstream targets of AHR signaling, and how is gene expression regulated by AHR? 03/04/2021

AHR forms a complex with co-activators or co-repressors upon ligand binding, leading to the modulation of gene expression. Downstream targets include cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYP1A1, CYP1B1), phase II detoxification enzymes, and cytokines.

How does AHR activation occur, and what are its endogenous ligands? 12/13/2020

AHR activation occurs upon binding to specific ligands, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (HAHs), and tryptophan derivatives, such as indole-3-carbinol. Endogenous ligands are derived from cellular metabolism and the diet.

How is AHR activity regulated post-translationally, and what are the protein-protein interactions that modulate its function? 04/18/2018

AHR activity can be regulated through various post-translational modifications, including phosphorylation and ubiquitination. Protein-protein interactions with chaperones and co-regulators also influence AHR function.
