Once glucocorticoids have bound to GR, changes in the receptor structure result in dissociation of molecular chaperone proteins, thereby exposing nuclear localization signals. This results in rapid transport of the activated glucocorticoid receptorglucocorticoid complex into the nucleus, where it binds to DNA at specific sequences in the promoter region of glucocorticoid-responsive genes known as glucocorticoid response elements (GRE). Two glucocorticoid receptor molecules bind together as a homodimer and bind to GRE, leading to changes in gene transcription.

29 Methylation of histones, particularly histone H3, by histone methyltransferases, usually results in gene suppression. 33 GR is acetylated within the nucleus at specific lysine residues close to the hinge region and only binds to its DNA binding site in its acetylated form. 6). Non-transcriptional effects Although most of the actions of glucocorticoids are mediated by changes in transcription through chromatin remodelling, it is increasingly recognized that glucocorticoids may also affect protein synthesis by reducing the stability of mRNA so that less protein is synthesized.
