The influence of 41°C whole body hyperthermic stress on glucocorticoid receptor (GR) association with 90-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp90) in the rat liver cytosol was examined. Total cytosolic GR and Hsp90 concentrations, as well as the amount of Hsp90 co-immunoprecipitated with the GR were determined by quantitative Western blotting using BuGR2 as anti-GR and AC88 as anti- Hsp90 monoclonal antibody. After exposure of the animals to the heat stress, the level of cytosolic Hsp90 increased, while its ratio to apo-receptor within non-activated GR heterooligomeric complexes remained unaltered. Therefore, the Hsp90 recruitment by the GR was not dependent on Hsp90 total cytosolic concentration.
