Glucocorticoids (Gc) are highly potent anti-inflammatory agents. They act through the glucocorticoid receptor (GR), a protein capable of multiple protein interactions. The pro-inflammatory cytokines, TNF-a and IL-1 signal, in part, through activation of NF-kB. Nf-kB transactivation is inhibited by activated GR. It has been suggested that the GR, and the p65 (RelA) component of NF-kB form a direct contact independent of Gc ligand, and that Gc binding results in inhibition of p6...
