Example text

Glucocorticoids exert their anti-inflammatory effects through influencing multiple signal transduction and gene expression pathways. Their most important action is switching off multiple activated inflammatory genes through inhibition of HAT and recruitment of HDAC2 activity to the inflammatory gene transcriptional complex. In addition, glucocorticoids may activate several anti-inflammatory genes and increase the degradation of mRNA encoding certain inflammatory proteins. This broad array of actions may account for the striking efficacy of glucocorticoids in complex inflammatory diseases such as asthma and the difficulty in finding alternative anti-inflammatory drugs.

G. g. g. 6 Acetylation of glucocorticoid receptors (GR). Binding of a corticosteroid to GR results in its acetylation by histone acetyltransferases (HAT), such as CREB-binding protein (CBP), and a dimer of acetylated GR then binds to glucocorticoid response elements (GRE) to activate or suppress genes (such as side effect genes). Deacetylation of GR by histone deacetylase-2 (HDAC2) is necessary for GR to interact with CBP and inhibit nuclear factor-␬B (NF-␬B) to switch off inflammatory genes. GM-CSF, granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor; IL-8, interleukin-8; SLPI, secretory leukoprotease inhibitor.
