    Conditional deletion of glucocorticoid receptors in rat brain results in sex-specific deficits in fear and coping behaviors

    Jessie R Scheimann et al.
    Development of a conditional glucocorticoid receptor knockdown rat model allows for high resolution anatomical, physiological and behavioral exploration into the role of glucocorticoid receptor signaling in defined cell populations.

    Glucocorticoid receptor-PPARα axis in fetal mouse liver prepares neonates for milk lipid catabolism

    Gianpaolo Rando et al.
    Glucocorticoid receptor directly regulates the transcriptional activity of peroxisome proliferator-activated alpha (PPARα) before birth in anticipation of the sudden shifts in the postnatal nutrient source and metabolic demands.

    Gene-specific mechanisms direct glucocorticoid-receptor-driven repression of inflammatory response genes in macrophages

    Maria A Sacta et al.
    A comprehensive analysis of the glucocorticoid-sensitive pro-inflammatory genes in macrophages reveals fundamental differences between the temporal events and components of transcriptional machinery that the glucocorticoid receptor targets to repress their transcription.

    Glucocorticoid receptor-mediated amygdalar metaplasticity underlies adaptive modulation of fear memory by stress

    Ran Inoue et al.
    Behavioral analyses and an optogenetic approach reveal an existence of GR-mediated metaplasticity in the LA and its link with adaptive fear response to auditory cues in a stressful condition.

    BRG1 governs glucocorticoid receptor interactions with chromatin and pioneer factors across the genome

    Jackson A Hoffman et al.
    Within distinct chromatin landscapes, the BRG1 chromatin remodeling enzyme patterns hormone-dependent chromatin interactions, pioneer factor recruitment, and transcriptional activity.

    Regulation of the glucocorticoid receptor via a BET-dependent enhancer drives antiandrogen resistance in prostate cancer

    Neel Shah et al.
    Epigenetic regulation of the glucocorticoid receptor in castration-resistant prostate cancer can be targeted via the use of BET bromodomain inhibitors.

    Aberrant corticosteroid metabolism in tumor cells enables GR takeover in enzalutamide resistant prostate cancer

    Jianneng Li et al.
    Prostate cancer resistance to androgen receptor antagonist therapy occurs by way of tumors impeding local glucocorticoid metabolism and inactivation and thereby permitting sustained glucocorticoids to stimulate up-regulated glucocorticoid receptor.

    Protein Dynamics: Proteins acting out of (dis)order

    David Eliezer
    A disordered region at the N-terminus of the glucocorticoid receptor can fine tune how cells respond to a hormone via an allosteric mechanism.

    Genetically tunable frustration controls allostery in an intrinsically disordered transcription factor

    Jing Li et al.
    Allostery in an intrinsically disordered domain of glucocorticoid receptor is mediated by opposing thermodynamic signals that are directed through the production of different isoforms.
    1. Neuroscience

    Plasticity of calcium-permeable AMPA glutamate receptors in Pro-opiomelanocortin neurons

    Shigetomo Suyama et al.
    Neurons in the hypothalamus that promote satiety manifest plasticity of their response to the excitatory transmitter, glutamate, by re-organizing the composition of a specific glutamare receptor.
