Steroid hormone action on gene expression

Because steroids are lipophilic, they diffuse easily through the cell membranes, and therefore have a very large distribution volume. In their target tissues, steroids are concentrated by an uptake mechanism which relies on their binding to intracellular proteins (or " receptors ", see below). High concentration of steroids are also found in adipose tissue, although this is not a target for hormone action. In the human male, adipose tissue contains aromatase activity, and seems to be the main source of androgen-derived estrogens found in the circulation. But most of the peripheral metabolism occurs in the liver and to some extent in the kidneys, which are the major sites of hormone inactivation and elimination, or catabolism (see below).

The Story: In February 2005 Canseco released his autobiography and steroid tell-all, Juiced , Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In it he described himself as 'the chemist' having experimented on himself for years. He claimed to have educated and personally injected many players including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi. In his second book, Vindicated , Canseco added Magglio Ordonez to the list of players he had educated and injected with steroids. He also said he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a trainer/PED supplier after Rodriguez had asked where he could get steroids.

After treatment, cell cultures were transferred to Eppendorf tubes and harvested by centrifugation at 2,000 rpm for 5 min. Cells were washed twice with cold PBS and then lysed in 400 µL RIPA buffer, 5 µL protease inhibitor, and 5 µL EDTA for 5 min. Lysed cells were sonicated for 1 min on ice, centrifuged for 10 min at 4°C and the supernatant was transferred into new vials. Equivalent amounts of total protein from each sample were used for SDS-PAGE Western blot analysis. The housekeeping genes β-actin and β-tubulin were used as loading controls. Rabbit anti-rat GH, anti-rat LH, and anti-mouse PRL antibodies were obtained from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases National Hormone and Peptide Program. Rabbit anti-human GHRHR antibodies were purchased from Abcam (Cambridge, MA). Goat anti-rabbit antibodies conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (Bio-Rad, Hercules, CA) were used in our chemiluminescence assay. This experiment was repeated twice.

Some of the approved drugs are synthetic versions of the natural hormones, such as trenbolone acetate and zeranol. Just like the natural hormone implants, before FDA approved these drugs, FDA required information and/or toxicological testing in laboratory animals to determine safe levels in the animal products that we eat (edible tissues). Furthermore, FDA required that the manufacturers demonstrate that the amount of hormone left in each edible tissue after treatment is below the appropriate safe level. As described above, a safe level is a level which would be expected to have no harmful effect in humans.
