Glucocorticoid Receptor human (hGR) has been used to study its influence on monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) accumulatio in dexamethasone treated cells, and for the determination of interactions between MCP-1 mRNA and GR.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glucocorticoid Receptor (GR) acts upon and mediates the actions of glucocorticoids which are essential for normal physiological processes. In mothers with postnatal depression, this gene is methylated at the promoter in infants. This effect is suppressed by stroking of infants by their mothers. Various infectious disease-related genes in the GR signal transduction pathway are influenced by prenatal exposure to arsenic and cadmium.

General description

Glucocorticoid Receptor (GR) is an intracellular, ligand-dependent transcription factor, which shows a ubiquitous expression pattern. It is a member of the steroid/thyroid/retinoic acid nuclear receptor superfamily of transcription factors and is localized to human chromosome 5. The encoded receptor is composed of an NH2-terminal domain, a DNA-binding domain (DBD), hinge region and the ligand-binding domain (LBD). Alternative splicing gives rise to five isoforms namely hGRα, hGRβ, hGRγ, hGR-A and hGR-P.
