The nuclear hormone receptor superfamily includes receptors for thyroid and steroid hormones, retinoids and vitamin D, as well as different "orphan" receptors of unknown ligand. Ligands for some of these receptors have been recently identified, showing that products of lipid metabolism such as fatty acids, prostaglandins, or cholesterol derivatives can regulate gene expression by binding to nuclear receptors. Nuclear receptors act as ligand-inducible transcription factors by directly… Expand
Regulation of hormone signaling by nuclear receptor interacting proteins.
TLDR
The results show that RIP140 and Mdm2 are two important regulators of ERα expression and activity and could therefore play major roles in hormone-dependent breast carcinogenesis. Expand
Functional consequences of interactions between thyroid hormone receptors and retinoid X receptor
Purpose of reviewThyroid hormone receptors mediate a wide variety of biologic processes in cells. They are members of the nuclear hormone receptor gene family, which includes the receptors thatExpand
Natural and synthetic retinoid X receptor ligands and their role in selected nuclear receptor action.
TLDR
This article summarizes both naturally occurring and synthetic ligands for nuclear retinoid X receptors and describes, predominantly in mammals, their role in molecular mechanisms within the cells, with a focus on triorganotin compounds. Expand
Steroid Hormone Receptor Signaling
TLDR
The subgroup of steroid hormone receptors (SHRs), a member of the steroid/thyroid/retinoid nuclear receptor superfamily, includes receptors for estradiol and three orphan nuclear receptors closely related to the ERs for which a natural ligand remains to be identified. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation by nuclear receptors. Perspectives for therapeutic implications.
TLDR
Emphasis is given to determinants of signalling specificity, especially since they highlight prominent targets for novel drug discovery and the establishment of coregulator/cointegrator complexes on gene promoters. Expand
Pathways and Networks of Nuclear Receptors and Modeling of Syndrome X
TLDR
The author reviews the state-of-the-art of nuclear receptor and syndrome X research from chemical computing and bioinformatics viewpoint, and proposes a project, called Nuclear Receptor and Syndrome X (NR-SX) Project, which is a possible killer application of chemical Computing and bioInformatics in the genomic era.

An RNA-binding Domain in the Thyroid Hormone Receptor Enhances Transcriptional Activation*
TLDR
It is concluded that thyroid hormone receptors bind RNA through a novel domain and that the interaction of this domain with SRA, and perhaps other RNAs, enhances thyroid hormone receptor function. Expand
Dynamics of nuclear receptor target gene regulation
TLDR
The dynamic nature of transcriptional regulation was observed first with different members of the nuclear receptor superfamily, but is now also extended to other transcription factors, such as nuclear factor κB. Expand
Estrogen signaling multiple pathways to impact gene transcription.
TLDR
This review will focus on the recent knowledge about the mechanism by which ERs regulate the expression of target genes and the emerging field of integration of membrane and nuclear receptor signaling, giving examples of the ways by which the genomic and non-genomic actions of ERs on target genes converge. Expand
STAT3 and transactivation of steroid hormone receptors.
TLDR
Constitutively active STAT3 enhances transcriptional activity of SHRs, including AR, GR, PR, and ER, in a comparable extent to the stimulation elicited by other coactivators and in a synergistic manner to these other coActivators. Expand

A Conformational Switch in Nuclear Hormone Receptors Is Involved in Coupling Hormone Binding to Corepressor Release
TLDR
It is reported here that an alpha-helical domain located at the thyroid hormone receptor C terminus appears to undergo a hormone-induced conformational change required for release of corepressor and that amino acid substitutions that abrogate this conformationalchange can impair or prevent core pressor release.

TLDR
It is reported that activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) attenuates the ligand-dependent transactivation function of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) and its heterodimer partner RXR, and this effect appears to be mediated by phosphorylation of human RXRα on a serine residue at amino acid 260 in the protein.

Selective effects of ligands on vitamin D3 receptor- and retinoid X receptor-mediated gene activation in vivo
TLDR
These experiments suggested a complex interaction between VDR and RXR and their respective ligands on inducible target genes in vivo, establishing a complex, sensitive cross talk in vivo between two ligands and their receptors that signal through two distinct endocrine pathways. Expand

TLDR
All receptors contain a highly conserved cysteine-rich region, the DNA- binding domain (DBD) that forms two “zinc-finger” structures that allow protein-DNA as well as proteinprotein interaction (4). Expand
Ligand-dependent transcription activation by nuclear receptors requires the DRIP complex
TLDR
The identities of thirteen DRIPs are reported, and it is shown that the complex has a central function in hormone-dependent transactivation by VDR on chromatin templates. Expand

TLDR
Overexpression of RAC3 enhances the ligand-dependent transcriptional activation by the receptors in mammalian cells and should be useful as a tool for understanding hormone action and as a target for developing new therapeutic agents that can block hormone-dependent neoplasia. Expand
Retinoid X receptor is an auxiliary protein for thyroid hormone and retinoic acid receptors
TLDR
The studies reveal a new subclass of receptors and a regulatory pathway controlling nuclear receptor activities by heterodimer formation, and show that RXRα can greatly enhance the transcriptional activity of TR and RAR at low retinoic acid concentrations that do not significantly activate RXR α itself. Expand
A regulatory role for RIP140 in nuclear receptor activation.
TLDR
This work proposes a model in which RIP140 indirectly regulates nuclear receptor AF-2 activity by competition for coactivators such as SRC-1, and provides important evidence that the in vitro binding of RIP140 and S RC-1 to nuclear receptors is competitive. Expand
A nuclear receptor corepressor modulates transcriptional activity of antagonist-occupied steroid hormone receptor.
TLDR
Strong evidence is provided supporting the existence of a cellular inhibitory cofactor that interacts with the B form of human PR (PR-B) complexed with the antiprogestin RU486 to maintain it in a transcriptionally inactive state and suggests that the inhibitor that associates with RU486-PR- B and represses its transcriptional activity is either identical or structurally related to the corepressor NCoR.
