It is often implied that the various molecular, physiological, and behavioral responses to the glucocorticoid dexamethasone (DEX) are mediated in brain exclusively via the interactions of this synthetic steroid with the classical glucocorticoid (type II) receptor. The results reported in...

It is unclear whether in vitro corticosteroid receptor binding assays have used inappropriately high concentrations of synthetic corticosteroid competitors, thereby potentially introducing error into estimates of type I (mineralocorticoid) and type II (glucocorticoid) receptor binding. To determine more accurately the...

The induction of Na,K-ATPase plays a vital role in mediating epithelial sodium transport. Although its activity is regulated by corticosteroids, it is uncertain whether this is predominantly by mineralo- or glucocorticoid mechanisms. 11 beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11 beta HSD) catalyzes the...

In peripheral sodium-transporting tissues, the serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase (SGK) isoform-1 is an early corticosteroid target gene in the activation of epithelial sodium channels (ENaCs). Sodium transport across the human ocular nonpigmented and pigmented ciliary epithelial bilayer (NPE-PE) is essential...
