Brief description Genes up-regulated in macrophages treated by corticosterone [PubChem=5839]: wildtype versus NR3C2 [GeneID=4306] knockout.
Full description or abstract Inappropriate excess of the steroid hormone aldosterone, which is a mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) agonist, is associated with increased inflammation and risk of cardiovascular disease. MR antagonists are cardioprotective and antiinflammatory in vivo, and evidence suggests that they mediate these effects in part by aldosterone- independent mechanisms. We used affymetrix to characterize the effect of Mineralocorticoid Receptor deletion on macrophage transcriptional profile, and identify its requirement in normal glucocorticoid signalling.
