    Steroid receptors

    whats is the difference between steroid receptors and muscle cells

    I read IGF-1 LR3 increases the number of muscle cells and in a way IGF can actually change your genetic capabilities in terms of muscle tissue and cell count

    not where I want to be
    The androgen receptor lies within the muscle cells (among other types of cells). Basically, the steroid molecule floats through the lipid bi-layer, binds to the ar which is dissolved in the cytosol, then it is taken into the nucleus where it dictates what to build. More muslce cells = more androgen receptors.
