Abstract [en]

The glucocorticoid receptor regulates transcription through DNA binding as well as through cross-talk with other transcription factors. In hepatocytes, the glucocorticoid receptor is critical for normal postnatal growth. Using hepatocyte- specific and domain-selective mutations in the mouse we show that Stat5 in hepatocytes is essential for normal postnatal growth and that it mediates the growth- promoting effect of the glucocorticoid receptor through a direct interaction involving the N-terminal tetramerization domain of Stat5b. This interaction mediates a selective and unexpectedly extensive part of the transcriptional actions of these molecules since it controls the expression of gene sets involved in growth and sexual maturation.
