The nongenomic, rapid effects of glucocorticoid activate multiple intracellular transduction pathways. This review proposes a possible genomic consequence of the nongenomic action of steroids. The genomic actions of hormonal steroids may be twofold: classic genomic and nongenomically induced genomic.
