transcription factor of the nuclear receptor family. Receptor for glucocorticoids (GC). Binds to glucocorticoid response elements (GRE) and modulates other transcription factors. Affects inflammatory responses, cellular proliferation and differentiation in target tissues. Three alternatively spliced isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
