Recombinant Human NR1H2

Cat.No.: NR1H2-133H
Product Overview: Recombinant human LXR beta- LBD is a protein composed of 31.9 kDa (201-461 amino acids). Human recombinant protein expressed in Nicotiana benthamiana. Recombinant human Liver X receptor Beta-BDL contains a 6-His-tag at the N-terminal end, is produced by transient expression in non-transgenic plants and is purified by sequential chromatography (FPLC). This product contains no animal–derived components or impurities. Animal free product.
Description: Liver X Receptors (LXRs) are nuclear receptors that regulate the metabolism of cholesterol and bile acids. There are two subtypes, LXRα and LXRbeta. The LXRs are ligand-dependent transcription factors that form permissive heterodimers with the retinoid X receptor (RXR). LXR-member of Nuclear Receptor Family is activated by certain oxysterol derivatives of cholesterol. They play an important role in cholesterol, lipid, and carbohydrate metabolism and are critical for the control of lipid homeostasis.. LXRα is highly expressed in liver tissue. They respond to elevated cholesterol levels via transactivation of genes involved in sterol transport (ABCA1, ABCG1, ABCG5, and ABCG8), cholesterol efflux and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism, and sterol catabolism (CYP7A1). They also play a central role in regulating cellular lipid content through activation of SREBP-1c, which is the master regulator of de novo lipogenesis. LXRs were found to upregulate angiopoietin- like protein 3 (Angpf13), a member of the family of vascular endothelial growth factors that is also a key regulator of lipid metabolism. LXRs serve as cholesterol sensors that regulate the expression of multiple genes involved in the efflux, transport, and excretion of cholesterol. Synthetic LXR agonists inhibit the development of atherosclerosis in murine models. These observations identify the LXR pathway as a potential target for therapeutic intervention in human cardiovascular disease.
