  • 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

Thank you for your email.

Apologies for delay. We unfortunately cannot confirm the protein - the error happened due to mislabelling of the product. It seems there might be LXR beta in it however I can not 100% confirm it but surely it is not LXR alpha.

I am happy sending you a new vial of ab81934; we are however waiting for this item to be in stock this week. Would you like to receive a new correct labelled vial?

Thanks for your cooperation. I will look forward to hearing from you soon.
