Crystal structure of the ligand-binding domain of the human nuclear receptor RXR-α
The crystal structure of the human retinoid-X receptor RXR-α ligand-binding domain reveals a previously undiscovered fold of an antiparallel α-helical sandwich, packed as dimeric units. Two helicesExpand

A canonical structure for the ligand-binding domain of nuclear receptors
The ability of nuclear receptors (NRs) to activate transcription of target genes requires the binding of cognate ligands to their ligand-binding domains (LBDs). Information provided by theExpand

Osh4p exchanges sterols for phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate between lipid bilayers
The yeast Kes1p/Osh4p protein functions as a sterol/PI(4)P exchanger between lipid membranes, which suggests the possibility of creating a sterol gradient via phosphoinositide metabolism.

Activation of RXR–PPAR heterodimers by organotin environmental endocrine disruptors
The nuclear receptor retinoid X receptor‐α (RXR‐α)–peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor‐γ (PPAR‐γ) heterodimer was recently reported to have a crucial function in mediating the deleteriousExpand

Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor γ Is a Target for Halogenated Analogs of Bisphenol A
Background: The occurrence of halogenated analogs of the xenoestrogen bisphenol A (BPA) has been recently demonstrated both in environmental and human samples. These analogs include brominated [e.g.,Expand
