  • Function
    Orphan receptor. Interaction with RXR shifts RXR from its role as a silent DNA-binding partner to an active ligand-binding subunit in mediating retinoid responses through target genes defined by LXRES. LXRES are DR4-type response elements characterized by direct repeats of two similar hexanuclotide half-sites spaced by four nucleotides. Plays an important role in the regulation of cholesterol homeostasis, regulating cholesterol uptake through MYLIP-dependent ubiquitination of LDLR, VLDLR and LRP8.
  • Tissue specificity
    Visceral organs specific expression. Strong expression was found in liver, kidney and intestine followed by spleen and to a lesser extent the adrenals.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus.
  • Information by UniProt
