Using in situ hybridization (ISH), we studied the distribution of rat glucocorticoid receptors (GR) mRNA in rat spinal cord. mRNA encoding for GR was abundant throughout the white matter and a clear pattern of distribution was detected within the grey matter. In the grey matter mRNA was primarily localized in the ventral horn, where motoneurones were strongly labelled. In the dorsal horn, the distribution appears more diffuse but the superficial layers (I and II) clearly exhibited a shigher signal. We conclude that, in rat spinal cord, GR are present in both glial and neuronal cells. In particular, both somatosensory and motor pathways contain GR.
