Minireview: role of orphan nuclear receptors in cancer and potential as drug targets.
Houston, United States. In Mol Endocrinol, 2014
The nuclear orphan receptors for which endogenous ligands have not been identified include nuclear receptor (NR)0B1 (adrenal hypoplasia congenita critical region on chromosome X gene), NR0B2 (small heterodimer partner), NR1D1/2 (Rev-Erbα/β), NR2C1 (testicular receptor 2), NR2C2 (testicular receptor 4), NR2E1 (tailless), NR2E3 (photoreceptor-specific NR [PNR]), NR2F1 chicken ovalbumin upstream promoter transcription factor 1 (COUP-TFI), NR2F2 (COUP-TFII), NR2F6 (v-erbA-related protein), NR4A1 (Nur77), NR4A2 (Nurr1), NR4A3 (Nor1), and NR6A1 (GCNF).
Leucine-Rich Repeat (LRR) Domains Containing Intervening Motifs in Plants.
Sapporo, Japan. In Biomolecules, 2011
The LRR@IR proteins are LRR-containing receptor-like kinases (LRR-RLKs), LRR-containing receptor-like proteins (LRR-RLPs), TONSOKU/BRUSHY1, and MJK13.7; the LRR-RLKs are homologs of TMK1/Rhg4, BRI1, PSKR, PSYR1, Arabidopsis At1g74360, and RPK2, while the LRR-RLPs are those of Cf-9/Cf-4, Cf-2/Cf-5, Ve, HcrVf, RPP27, EIX1, clavata 2, fascinated ear2, RLP2, rice Os10g0479700, and putative soybean disease resistance protein.
How nuclear receptors tell time.
Nice, France. In J Appl Physiol, 2009
Other NR family members, including the orphan NR EAR2, peroxisome proliferator activated receptors-alpha/gamma, estrogen receptor-alpha, and retinoic acid receptors, are also linked to the clockwork mechanism.
Orphans against autoimmunity.
Boston, United States. In Immunity, 2008
In this issue of Immunity, Hermann-Kleiter et al. (2008) identify a nuclear orphan receptor, NR2F6, as a negative regulator of the T helper 17 cell subset and report that NR2F6-deficient mice develop late-onset autoimmune disease.
