Two glucocorticoid receptor molecules bind together as a homodimer and bind to GRE, leading to changes in gene transcription. 3). There are few well-documented examples of negative GREs, but some are relevant to glucocorticoid side effects, including genes that regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary axis (proopiomelanocortin and corticotrophinreleasing factor), bone metabolism (osteocalcin) and skin structure (keratins). 3 Glucocorticoids may regulate gene expression in several ways. Glucocorticoids enter the cell to bind to glucocorticoid receptors (GR) in the cytoplasm, which translocate to the nucleus.
