A heterodimer composed of p50 and p65 NF-B proteins translocates to the nucleus and binds to speciﬁc B recognition sites and also to coactivators, such as CREB-binding protein (CBP) or p300/CBP-activating factor (PCAF), which have intrinsic histone acetyltransferase (HAT) activity. This causes acetylation of lysines in core histone H4, resulting in increased expression of genes encoding inﬂammatory proteins, such as granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF). After activation by corticosteroids, glucocorticoid receptors (GR) translocate to the nucleus and bind to coactivators to directly inhibit HAT activity, and histone deacetylases (HDAC) are recruited, thus resulting in histone acetylation reversal leading to the suppression of inﬂammatory genes.
