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).
Receptors of thyroid hormones.
Madrid, Spain. In Pediatr Endocrinol Rev, 2013
The important physiological actions of the thyroid hormones are mediated by binding to nuclear thyroid hormone receptors (TRs), encoded by two genes TRalpha and TRbeta.
Novel treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia: As₂O₃, retinoic acid and retinoid pharmacology.
Beijing, China. In Curr Pharm Biotechnol, 2012
Here, like v-erbA, PML/RARa is a (strong) transcriptional repressor of the RA receptor (RAR) complex, and PML/RARa fusion receptor gene act as conditional oncogenic receptor (translocated chimeric retinoic acid a signaling) or oncogenic PML/RARa may participate in leukemogenesis of APL through blocking RA-mediated promyelocytic differentiation.
Thyroid hormone receptor-α and vascular function.
Chicago, United States. In Am J Physiol Cell Physiol, 2012
found that TRalpha is the predominant TR in mouse coronary smooth muscle cells (SMCs). Coronary SMCs isolated from TRalpha knockout mice exhibited a significant decrease in K(+) channel activity
