Gene expression of glucocorticoid receptor, 11β-HSD-1, and 11β-HSD-2 in stomach and the intestine.

Gene expression (mRNA) for the glucocorticoid and 11β-HSD-1 receptors was minimally expressed in the stomach and intestine. In contrast, whereas 11β-HSD-2 mRNA expression was minimal in the stomach, it was detectable in the intestine in all four subjects in which it was measured (P < 0.05 vs. zero) (Fig. 8).
