|[en] An in vitro competition assay was used to investigate whether binding sites for the human glucocorticoid receptor occur in the human genes for growth hormone (hGH) and placental lactogen (chorionic somatomammotropin, hCS). These genes display 95% sequence homology. Two receptor-binding regions were found in the hGH gene, one of which is located within 290 bp upstream, and one within 251 bp downstream from the transcription initiation site. Two binding regions homologous to those in the hGH gene were found in the hCS gene. The receptor-binding DNA fragment from the structural part of the genes, but not that from their promoter area, contained a sequence homologous to a 15-bp consensus sequence proposed earlier for the glucocorticoid receptor binding site. It is unlikely that the putative difference in glucocorticoid sensitivity between the hGH and hCS genes is accounted for by major differences in glucocorticoid receptor binding pattern.|
