    Two years have passed since the Ah receptor (AhR) and the AhR nuclear translocator (Arnt) were revealed to constitute a novel ligand-activated transcription factor by molecular biological studies on cloned cDNAs. Many interesting properties of the AhR/Arnt system have begun to be elucidated. We present here a brief summary of the molecular biology of AhR and Arnt.
