Term Detail
GO term:glucocorticoid receptor activity
GO id:GO:0004883
Definition:Combining with a glucocorticoid and transmitting the signal within the cell trigger a change in cell activity or function.
CommentsIf the mechanism by which a glucocorticoid receptor functions is known, consider instead annotating to the child terms 'glucocorticoid-activated sequence-specific DNA binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity ; GO:0038050' or 'glucocorticoid-activated RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding transcription factor activity ; GO:0038051'.
