NR3C1 or nuclear receptor subfamily 3, group C, member 1 or glucocorticoid receptor is a gene that may be associated with the development of chronic fatigue syndrome.[1][2]

Function[edit | edit source]

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

Goertzel et al. (2006) concluded:

Three genes were found to be common in a group of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome compared to the general population; TPH2 - neuronal tryptophan hydroxylase, COMT - catechol-O-methyltransferase, and NR3C1 - nuclear receptor subfamily 3, group C, member 1 glucocorticoid receptor, together these three have an accuracy of 76%.[2]

accuracy The "closeness of an observation to the true clinical state". With respect to diagnostic tests, "accuracy" means how specific and sensitive the test is.

single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) - A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP, pronounced "snip") is a potential genetic mutation that occurs in a single spot in the human genome; a difference in a single DNA building block. SNPs are often represented by an "rs" number, such as "rs53576".

neuroendocrine relating to hormones that influence the nervous system
