Retinoid receptors in human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: retinoid X receptor as a potent prognostic factor.

Abstract

Retinoids regulate cell proliferation and differentiation in normal and neoplastic tissue. These effects are mainly mediated by two types of nuclear retinoid receptors, retinoic acid receptors (RAR) and retinoid X receptors (RXR). RXR have been demonstrated to play important roles in esophageal carcinoma, but the expression of RXRβ and RXRγ has not been… (More)
