Hormone (testosterone) EXTRACELLULAR FLUID Receptor protein Plasma membrane Hormone- receptor complex DNA mRNA NUCLEUS New protein CYTOPLASM Hydrophobic hormones diffuse across the plasma membrane and bind to a receptor. This binding causes a change in conformation that now exposes a nuclear targeting signal. The receptor/hormone complex is transported into the nucleus, where the protein binds DNA and activates specific hormone responsive genes.
