A dimer of p50 and p65 NF-B proteins translocates to the nucleus and binds to speciﬁc B recognition sites and also to coactivators, such as CREB-binding protein (CBP), which have intrinsic histone acetyltransferase (HAT) activity. This results in acetylation of core histone H4, resulting in increased expression of genes encoding multiple inﬂammatory proteins. Glucocorticoid receptors (GR) after activation by glucocorticoids translocate to the nucleus and bind to coactivators to inhibit HAT activity directly and recruit histone deacetylase-2 (HDAC2), which reverses histone acetylation leading to suppression of these activated inﬂammatory genes.

49 Interaction with transcription factors Another proposed mechanism is a failure of GR to inhibit the activation of inﬂammatory genes by transcription factors, such as NF-B and AP-1. 52 However, in another group of patients the defect in histone acetylation is found despite normal nuclear localization of GR. This may be a result of GR phosphorylation within the nucleus due to the activation of p38 MAP kinase,46 which may result in a failure to recruit a distinct coactivator(s). 51 This presumably means that glucocorticoids are not able to activate certain genes that are critical to the anti-inﬂammatory action of high doses of glucocorticoids, but whether this is a rare genetic defect is not yet known.
