G. g. 6 Acetylation of glucocorticoid receptors (GR). Binding of a corticosteroid to GR results in its acetylation by histone acetyltransferases (HAT), such as CREB-binding protein (CBP), and a dimer of acetylated GR then binds to glucocorticoid response elements (GRE) to activate or suppress genes (such as side effect genes). Deacetylation of GR by histone deacetylase-2 (HDAC2) is necessary for GR to interact with CBP and inhibit nuclear factor-␬B (NF-␬B) to switch off inflammatory genes. GM-CSF, granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor; IL-8, interleukin-8; SLPI, secretory leukoprotease inhibitor.

Later, other lipophilic glucocorticosteroids (flunisolide, budesonide, fluticasone propionate, mometasone, ciclesonide) were developed for the treatment of asthma and allergic rhinitis. The main advantage of lipophilic glucocorticosteroids compared to their hydrophilic counterparts is a very high binding affinity for GR (at least 100 times greater than that of hydrocortisone). In addition, they have a very efficient first-pass hepatic metabolism, which results in an extremely low oral bioavailability, making the inhaled route of drug delivery preferable for these agents.
