The binding capacity of newborn and adult rat liver glucocorticoid receptors was compared, using receptor kinetic analysis. Neonatal receptors have (non-significantly) lower affinity and significantly less density to dexamethasone than adult ones. However, the neonatal binding is specific and there is no qualitative difference from the adult one.
