Androgen receptor (AR) belongs to the super-family of nuclear hormone receptors that employ complex molecular mechanisms to guide the development and physiological functions of their target tissues. Androgen receptor function plays a pivotal role in normal prostate development and physiology as well as prostate tumorigenesis. Androgen stimulation results in cell proliferation in both developing prostate and the malignant prostate. The transcriptional activity of the AR is modulated by a large and growing number of interacting proteins that function as co-activators and co-repressors. Androgen Receptor a phosphoprotein, and also regulates mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAP kinase). The inhibition of the MEK1/2 pathway correlates directly with a change in phosphorylation state of the androgen receptor.
