Glucocorticoids regulate diverse biological processes throughout the body via the glucocorticoid receptor (GR). Ligand‐bound GR translocates into the nucleus and can elicit changes in gene expression by direct contact with the DNA or by protein–protein interactions with other transcription factors. The GR can also mediate rapid nongenomic signaling events initiated in the cytoplasm. In this chapter, we review the biological and physiological implications of glucocorticoids, the GR, and many of… Expand
Glucocorticoid receptor control of transcription: precision and plasticity via allostery
TLDR
Evidence suggests that context-driven plasticity is conferred by the integration of multiple signals, each serving as an allosteric effector of GR conformation, a key determinant of regulatory complex composition and activity. Expand
Cytokines and Glucocorticoid Receptor Signaling
TLDR
Antidepressants and PKA activation have also been found to inhibit inflammatory cytokines and their signaling pathways, suggesting that drugs that target both inflammatory responses and the GR may have special efficacy in the treatment of depression. Expand
New Insights in Glucocorticoid Receptor Signaling—More Than Just a Ligand-Binding Receptor
TLDR
The clinical use of classical glucocorticoids (GC) is narrowed by the many side effects it causes and the resistance to GC observed in some diseases, so much work has yet to be done to find out the biological relevance of those alternative GR signaling pathways. Expand
Genomic and non-genomic effects of glucocorticoids: implications for breast cancer.
TLDR
Glucocorticoids mechanisms of action and their participation in several facets of BC are summarized. Expand
Glucocorticoid receptors, epidermal homeostasis and hair follicle differentiation.
TLDR
The role of GR as a modulator of epidermal development and homeostasis has received less attention and recent findings indicating that the skin acts as a true peripheral endocrine organ implies greater complexity than originally thought. Expand
Glucocorticoid Signaling

Regulation of drug-metabolizing cytochrome P450 enzymes by glucocorticoids
The regulation of drug-metabolizing cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYP) is a complex process involving multiple mechanisms. Among them, transcriptional regulation through ligand-activated nuclear receptorsExpand

TLDR
The latest findings on the action of glucocorticoids in immune cells are summarized with a view of identifying important control points that may be relevant in glucoc Corticoid therapy. Expand
Non-genomic effect of glucocorticoids on cardiovascular system
TLDR
It is suggested that manipulation of GC action based on both GC and GR metabolism, mitochondrial impact, and the action of serum- and glucocorticoid-dependent kinase 1 may provide new information with which to treat cardiovascular diseases. Expand

Glucocorticoid receptor isoforms generate transcription specificity.
TLDR
A new molecular model potentially underlying tissue-specific glucocorticoid resistance and selectivity is discussed, suggesting that unique GR isoform compositions within cells could determine the cell-specific response to glucOCorticoids. Expand
Multiple glucocorticoid receptor isoforms and mechanisms of post-translational modification
TLDR
The recent advances made in identifying the processes that generate and modify multiple GR isoforms and the post-translational modifications that contribute to the increasing diversity in the glucocorticoid signaling pathway are outlined. Expand
Translational regulatory mechanisms generate N-terminal glucocorticoid receptor isoforms with unique transcriptional target genes.
TLDR
It is reported here that one single GR mRNA species unexpectedly produces at least eight functional GR N-terminal isoforms via translational mechanisms, which display diverse cytoplasm-to-nucleus trafficking patterns and distinct transcriptional activities. Expand
Competition between glucocorticoid receptor and NFκB for control of the human FasL promoter
TLDR
FasL is the first gene described whose repression by GR is mediated by sterical occlusion of NFkB DNA binding, and represents an additional mechanism for the GR‐NFkB mutual antagonism. Expand
Functional antagonism between oncoprotein c-Jun and the glucocorticoid receptor
We present evidence that the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and transcription factor Jun/AP-1 can reciprocally repress one another's transcriptional activation by a novel mechanism that is independentExpand
Mechanisms of glucocorticoid signalling.
TLDR
It is proposed that the activating signal of a distal enhancer can be relayed onto the transcription-initiation complex by coupling elements located proximal to the promoter. Expand
Negative regulation of nuclear factor-kappaB activation and function by glucocorticoids.
TLDR
It should be noted that, in exerting its effect, activated GR did not affect the correct assembly of the pre-initiation (DAB) complex, but acted rather more proximally in inhibiting the correctAssembly of transcription factors in the promoter region, and thus transcriptional initiation. Expand
STAT3 Acts as a Co-activator of Glucocorticoid Receptor Signaling*
TLDR
These findings reveal a new level of interaction between these two crucial signaling cascades and indicate that activated STAT3 can also act as a transcriptional co-activator without direct association with its DNA binding motif. Expand
Glucocorticoid receptor function in hepatocytes is essential to promote postnatal body growth.
TLDR
These findings strongly support the model in which GR acts as a coactivator for Stat5-dependent transcription upon GH stimulation and reveal an essential role of hepatic GR in the control of body growth. Expand
Potentiation of glucocorticoid receptor transcriptional activity by sumoylation.
TLDR
A model in which SUMO-1 regulates the synergy control function of GR and serves as a unique signal for activation and destruction is proposed, largely exceeding those observed so far for other sumoylated transcription factors. Expand
