Retinoid X receptor β

RXR-β is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily that mediates signaling by 9-cis retinoic acid, a vitamin A (retinol) derivative. Along with other members of the RXR family, RXR-β plays roles in a variety of processes including embryonic patterning and organogenesis, cell proliferation and differentiation. RXRs commonly function as heterodimers with other members of the nuclear receptor superfamily. RXR-β is expressed in multiple organs in many major physiological systems (central nervous system (CNS), endocrine, metabolic, gastrointestinal, reproductive and cardiopulmonary), with particularly high levels in corpus striatum, pancreas, brown adipose tissue, testis, aorta and skin. RXR-β dysfunction has been associated with immune (type I diabetes, psoriasis) and psychiatric (schizophrenia, autism, alcoholism, bipolar disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)) disorders. Targeted disruption (knockout) of RXR-β results in defects in the immune system, hearing, homeostasis and metabolism, the liver/biliary system, skin and coat development, the central nervous system (CNS), the reproductive system (spermatogenesis), and also results in prenatal and perinatal lethality.
