Recombinant Human RXRA, Ligand Binding Domain

Cat. No.: RXRA-1151H
Description: Recombinant His tagged RXR-LBD is isolated from an E.coli strain that carries the coding sequence of the human RXR-alpha ligand binding domain under the control of a T7 promoter. Retinoid X receptor (RXR) serves as a promiscuous heterodimerization partner for many nuclear receptors through the identity box, a 40-amino acid subregion within the ligand binding domain (LBD). RXR partners include thyroid hormone receptors (TRs), retinoic acid receptors (RARs), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor, several constitutive active orphan nuclear receptors (e.g. Nuclear Growth Factor I-B), oxysterol receptors, and constitutive androstane receptors. RXRs also form homodimers to mediate the effects of 9-cisretinoic acid (9-cRA). Depending on these protein- protein interactions, RXR-containing complexes have distinct ligand-dependent and constitutive functions. The LBD is functionally complex and mediates ligand binding, receptor homo- and heterodimerization, repression of transcription in the absence of ligand, and ligand-dependent activation of transcription. Hormone binding to the structurally conserved LBD of the RXR triggers a conformational change that principally affects the conserved C-terminal transactivation helix H12 involved in transcriptional activation. Recombinant RXR-LBD is isolated from an E.coli strain that carries the coding sequence of the human RXRLBD under the control of a T7 promoter.
