Abstract:
The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a ubiquitously expressed transcription factor, involved in the regulation of metabolism, inflammation, the immune response and stress response. GR is a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily and is activated by binding glucocorticoids, which triggers receptor dimerisation, nuclear translocation and transcriptional activity. The activity of GR is further modulated by post-translational modifications, cofactor recruitment and protein stability. Exactly how GR regulates transcriptional activity in a gene specific manner and how GR responds to cellular stress is unclear.University of Manchester.
