This study is to understanding the transcription profile of human Glucocorticoid Receptor GR, gene of a neuroendocrine, stress response and obesity related receptor. For GR, relative luciferase activity RLA and the distribution of phosphorylation [P], glycosylation sites [G] on transcription factor for promoter model were plotted on the same chart. Within the 3.2 kb upstream of the methionine ATG, for GR, trend lines of RLA with that of [G] or ([P]-[G]), both tend to have negative reciprocal relationship. It brings up the question: for the neuendocrine glucocorticoid receptor, does the nutrition and obesity related glycosylation regulated the transcriptional activity in a negative reciprocal way? In conclusion, for GR, the reciprocal relation between trend line of [G], ([P] ± [G]) or [P] and that of RLA, give a specific digit evidence for the first time to the theory, which the structure related glycosylation and the signal sensing phosphorylation, exhibit either independently or Interactively on regulation of transcription activity.
