Glucocorticoid receptor homodimers bind to GRE sites in the promoter region of glucocorticoid-responsive genes. Interaction of the activated glucocorticoid receptor dimer with GRE usually increases transcription. Glucocorticoid receptors may increase transcription by interacting with coactivator molecules, such as CBP, thus activating histone acetylation and gene transcription. 4). 4 Glucocorticoid activation of anti-inflammatory gene expression. Glucocorticoids bind to cytoplasmic glucocorticoid receptors (GR), which translocate to the nucleus where they bind to glucocorticoid response elements (GRE) in the promoter region of steroid-sensitive genes and also directly or indirectly to coactivator molecules such as CREB-binding protein (CBP).
