  • Relevance
    LXR alpha and LXR beta are orphan receptors. 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. LXR alpha: Visceral organs specific expression. Strong expression was found in liver, kidney and intestine followed by spleen and to a lesser extent the adrenals. LXR beta: Ubiquitously expressed.

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Predicted band size: 51 kDa
    Observed band size: 55 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
    Additional bands at: 38 kDa, 75 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 1 hour

    Note: Additional minor bands consistently observed at 38kDa and 75kDa were successfully blocked by incubation with the immunising peptide.
