Early work in Dr O’Malley’s laboratory defined the primary molecular endocrine pathway through which steroid hormones act in reproductive tissues. He showed that steroid hormones regulate de novo synthesis of specific proteins by regulating the levels of specific mRNAs in target cells. Using cell-free transcription methods, his laboratory substantiated initiation of transcription as the rate-limiting step at which nuclear receptors regulate gene expression and defined steroid hormone receptors as transcription factors. More recently, Dr O’Malley’s group was the first to identify coregulators, molecules that are required by nuclear receptors for efficient activation or repression of gene expression.

Dr Evans' group’s initial cloning of the glucocorticoid receptor cDNA in 1985 led to the discovery of a superfamily of nuclear receptors that mediates the transcriptional effects of steroid hormones, thyroid hormones, dietary fatty acids and hormones derived from vitamin A and vitamin D. Dr Evans’ group has identified novel hormonal mechanisms involved in controlling the formation of fat cells and other cells in key metabolic organs. This work which has furthered our understanding of problems arising from obesity and Type II diabetes, and has laid the foundation for leveraging our knowledge of nuclear receptor signaling in the treatment of these conditions.

Dr McKenna leads the informatics group of the Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA) website, which since 2003 has been a key Open Access research resource for the nuclear receptor signaling community. His main area of interest is in building tools and databases that facilitate access by the research community to the wealth of published datasets in the field of nuclear receptor signaling. His group built the NURSA Transcriptomine database, which represents the first systematic effort to compile, annotate and make accessible the entire universe of data points in regulation of gene expression by nuclear receptors and their ligands.
