The orphan nuclear receptor steroidogenic factor-1 (SF-1) plays pivotal roles in the development and function of steroidogenic organs. Here we describe the differential effect of protein kinase A (PKA) on coregulation of SF-1 dependent transcription by two p160 family members, p300/CBP co-integrator-associated protein (p/CIP) and transcription intermediary factor-2 (TIF2). Thus, whereas p/CIP-stimulated SF-1 dependent transcription is further potentiated by PKA, we show that activation of PKA leads to selective downregulation of TIF2 protein and a subsequent repression of TIF2 coactivator function. Using a yeast two-hybrid screen we also identified a novel zinc finger containing protein, which interacts with SF-1 via the AF-2 domain.
