After the nucleus binds to receptors in the nucleus, it acts on the chromosomal site. By promoting or inhibiting the synthesis of mRNA to promote or inhibit the synthesis of certain proteins, resulting in biological effects.
2. Pharmacological effects: steroid powders have various pharmacological effects. The first point is that it can mediate water and salt metabolism.
