Van Andel Research Institute | Scientific Report Title page illustration: The glucocorticoid receptor. The figure represents the crystal structure of the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) bound to deacylcortivazol, which is a highly potent ligand against childhood leukemia. The GR protein chain is shown as ribbons, with helix 1 in blue and the coactivator helix in red. The deacylcortivazol molecule is shown within the GR structure in green, with the GR ligand-binding pocket shown by the yellow mesh. Structure by the Xu lab. Published June 2008.
