The nuclear receptor superfamily comprises ligand-regulated transcription factors that control various developmental and physiological pathways. These receptors share a common modular structure and regulate gene expression through the recruitment of a large set of coregulatory proteins. These transcription cofactors regulate, either positively or(More)
The orphan receptor short heterodimer partner (SHP) is a common partner for a great number of nuclear receptors, and it plays an important role in many diverse physiological events. In a previous study, we described SHP as a strong repressor of the androgen receptor (AR). Herein, we addressed the mechanism of action of its negative activity on(More)
Receptor interacting protein (RIP) 140 is a negative transcriptional regulator of nuclear hormone receptors which is required for the maintenance of energy homeostasis and ovulation. Despite its recruitment by agonist-liganded receptors, this protein exhibits a strong repressive activity which was initially attributed to competition with coactivator binding(More)
The androgen receptor (AR) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that controls growth and survival of prostate cancer cells. In the present study, we investigated the regulation of AR activity by the receptor-interacting protein 140 (RIP140). We first showed that RIP140 could be coimmunoprecipitated with the receptor when coexpressed in 293T cells.(More)
Nuclear hormone receptors belong to a superfamily of ligand-activated transcription factors which regulate fundamental physiological processes. Their activity is controlled by a large number of coregulatory proteins which are, in most cases, recruited by nuclear receptors in the presence of ligand. RIP140 (receptor interacting protein of 140 kDa) was one of(More)
