Dexamethasone indirectly induces Ndrg2 expression in rat astrocytes.


N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (Ndrg2) has been associated with cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. Ndrg2 expression in the brain is induced by glucocorticoid treatment or chronic stress in vivo. It has been postulated that glucocorticoid-induced Ndrg2 expression in astrocytes is regulated by the glucocorticoid response element half-site… (More)
