Application: Corticosteroid is an activator of MCR.
Corticosterone is a hormone actinic in acknowledgment to stress. It binds and activates MCRs(mineralocorticoid receptors) and GRs (glucocorticoid receptors), which after-effects in adapted expression. This eventually affects ionic conductances through the membrane. Corticosterone induces apoptosis in murine cartilage marrow.
