  1. CoPub identified 21 prednisolone-regulated genes in wild type (WT) mice that are associated in literature with gluconeogenesis. The identified genes share at least 3 publications and have an R-scaled score [34] of at least 35 with keyword 'gluconeogenesis' in Medline abstracts. For each gene, the fold change (Fc) in prednisolone versus vehicle-treated WT mice (Fc WT) is given. Additionally, for each gene also the Fc in prednisolone versus vehicle-treated GRdim mice (Fc GRdim) is shown. *It should be noted that in GRdim mice these genes did not meet the p-value cutoff of 0.01 for significance after correction for multiple testing, and are mentioned to illustrate a small effect of prednisolone on gene expression in GRdim mice.
