Glucocorticoid (GR)

The third class of nuclear receptors (Nuclear, Class 3, Estrogen Receptor-like) includes estrogen and estrogen-related receptors (ER), as well as the 3-ketosteroid receptors (progesterone (PR), androgen (AR), gluco- and mineralocorticoid (GR and MR, respectively) receptors).
Corticosteroid receptors include mineralocorticoid (MR) and glucocorticoid (GR) receptors. They play a crucial role in the regulation of a variety of physiological processes, including reproduction, metabolism, salt balance, inflammation, and immunity. Cortisol is the principal glucocorticoid that induces the transcriptional activities of both the GR and MR, whereas the mineralocorticoid aldosterone also activates only MR, but not GR[1].
