Abstract

Social disruption (SDR) of male mice has been shown to induce a state of functional glucocorticoid (GC) resistance in splenocytes. The present study demonstrated that GC resistance developed following repeated, but not acute exposure to SDR. GC resistance was long-lasting and persisted for at least 10 days after stress. In contrast, SDR did not alter cytokine secretion from peritoneal mononuclear cells treated with corticosterone. These findings suggest that SDR-induced GC resistance may be restricted to specific sites such as the spleen.
