Brief description Corticosteroids are commonly used to treat inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. Their action is based on effects on natural inflammation control pathways. One such pathway is that mediated by the protein known as GILZ (glucocorticoid induced leucine zipper). The function of this protein in disease is not well understood, and the research proposed here will increase understanding of its role. This knowledge could yield new treatments for arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
