Glucocorticoids promote thymocyte apoptosis and modulate transcription of several genes including GILZ, which is strongly up-regulated in the thymus. We used transgenic mice overexpressing GILZ in(More)
Glucocorticoids (GCs) are steroid hormones produced by the adrenal gland and regulated by the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis. GCs mediate effects that mostly result in transcriptional regulation(More)
Dexamethasone (DEX), a glucocorticoid hormone (GCH) with specificity for the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) induces T lymphocyte and thymocyte apoptosis. DEX-activated thymocyte apoptosis requires a(More)
