For example, GR binding to the nGRE in the promoter of hFas ligand prevents NF-κB binding and inhibits Fas ligand expression [67]. In other cases, GR binding to the GRE or nGRE inhibits transcription factor binding to a DNA-binding site proximal to the GR binding site (so-called composite elements) [14]. Downregulation of Gene Transcription by GR-Dependent Upregulation of Inhibitory Factors One mechanism that explains the powerful anti-inflammatory effects of GC is the very rapid, GRE-dependent upregulation of proteins that inhibit transcription factors.
