Considerable effort has been devoted to the isolation and characterization of the avian progesterone receptor. Methods have been developed for purification of the A and B receptor forms (1–5) and both immunological (2–4,6) and cDNA (7–9) probes for these proteins have recently become available to provide new opportunities for further characterization of the receptor proteins.
