There are numerous classes of protein that span the membrane of cells, be it the plasma membrane or intracellular organellar membranes. The transmembrane proteins include the various ion channels, other types of channel proteins, transporter proteins, growth factor receptors, and cell adhesion molecules. All transmembrane proteins, regardless of function, are classified dependent upon their structure. There are four main classifications for transmembrane proteins, type I, II, III, and IV. Types I, II, and III are all characterized by passing through the membrane once, referred to as single-pass transmembrane proteins. Type IV transmembrane proteins pass through the membrane several times and, therefore, they are all referred to as multiple-pass transmembrane proteins. Type I transmembrane proteins are anchored to the membrane via a sequence of hydrophobic amino acids referred to as the stop-transfer sequence and this class all have the C-terminus of the protein inside the cell and the N-terminus outside. A typical example of a type I transmembrane protein is the LDL receptor . Type II transmembrane proteins are anchored to the membrane via a signal-anchor sequence and have the C-terminus outside the cell and the N-terminus inside. An example of a type II transmembrane protein is the transferrin receptor . Type III transmembrane proteins do not have a signal sequence and the N-terminus of the protein is outside the cell. An example of a type III transmembrane protein would be any member of the cytochrome P450 family of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes found in the liver. Type IV transmembrane proteins are typified by the G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily of receptor proteins that span the membrane seven times. This class of receptor is often referred to as the serpentine receptor family because of the multiple membrane spans. Another example of a type IV transmembrane protein is the α-subunit of a typical Na + ,K + -ATPase (see below). Type IV transmembrane proteins are divided into type IV-A and type IV-B where the IV-A members have the N-terminus inside the cell and the C-terminus outside and the IV-B members are oriented in the opposite direction. The Na + ,K + -ATPase α-subunit proteins are type IV-A multi-pass transmembrane proteins, whereas, all GPCRs are members of the type IV-B family.

Neural injections of Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) were applied to males of both groups to test for neurogenesis . Analysis showed that testosterone and dihydrotestosterone regulated adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN). Adult hippocampal neurogenesis was regulated through the androgen receptor in the wild-type male rats, but not in the TMF male rats. To further test the role of activated androgen receptors on AHN, flutamide , an antiandrogen drug that competes with testosterone and dihydrotestosterone for androgen receptors , and dihydrotestosterone were administered to normal male rats. Dihydrotestosterone increased the number of BrdU cells, while flutamide inhibited these cells.

Although patients receiving systemic corticosteroid therapy are more susceptible to secondary infection than patients not receiving corticosteroids, administration via the inhaled route minimizes this risk. Corticosteroid therapy can mask the symptoms of infection and should not be used in cases of bacterial, fungal, or viral infections that are not adequately controlled by anti-infective agents, except in life-threatening circumstances. Fluticasone; salmeterol should be avoided in patients with tuberculosis infections of the respiratory tract if possible. The incidence or course of acute bacterial or viral infection is probably minimally affected by inhaled corticosteroids in immunocompetent individuals; however, close monitoring of patients with immunosuppression is recommended if treatment with an inhaled corticosteroid is necessary.
