The glucocorticoid receptor in monocyte-derived macrophages is critical for cardiac infarct repair and remodeling.


PMID 28768721

Abstract

Cell- and tissue-specific actions of glucocorticoids are mediated by the glucocorticoid receptor. Here, we demonstrate that the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) in macrophages is essential for cardiac healing after myocardial infarction. Compared with GR
