How This Key Event Works

?


Site of action: The molecular site of action is the glucocorticoid receptor (GR). The GR is a steroid receptor belonging to the nuclear receptor (NR) family of ligand-dependent transcription factors. In the absence of a ligand, the GR is transcriptionally inactive in the cytoplasm. Responses at the macromolecular level: Binding of a hormonal ligand enables GR to translocate into the nucleas where it binds to genomic GC-response elements (GRE) and regulates trascription of associated genes.
