“Glucocorticoid hormones are secreted with a prominent daily rhythm, but their diurnal genomic actions remain uncharacterized. Quagliarini et al. show how the Glucocorticoid Receptor controls daily cycles of glucose and triglyceride metabolism by time-dependent chromatin binding and target gene transcription, and how this rhythm is augmented by high fat diet. Interestingly, they found a new mechanism, describing how the activity of this drug target/hormone receptor can be affected by nutrition and will provide important insights for future therapies for metabolic disease.”
