Scope note: Proteínas específicas que se encuentran en la superficie o el interior de las células de los tejidos donde actúa la progesterona y que se combinan específicamente con esta. El complejo citosólico progesterona-receptor luego se asocia a los ácidos nucleicos para iniciar la síntesis proteica. Existen dos tipos de receptores de progesterona: A y B; ambos son inducidos por estrógenos y su semivida es breve.

Scope note: Specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, A and B. Both are induced by estrogen and have short half-lives.
