Nuclear Receptor

Nuclear receptors (NRs) are transcription factors that regulate several biological processes (e.g., cell growth, development, metabolism, and inflammation). Binding of NRs ligands triggers a cascade of events that can lead to various transcriptional responses including ligand-induced NR conformational changes and engagement of DNA sequences and coregulatory proteins. NRs are associated with many pathologies including cancer, inflammation, and cardiovascular disease.
