« Hide More detailed introduction

Retinoid X receptors (nomenclature as agreed by the NC-IUPHAR Subcommittee on Nuclear Hormone Receptors [5]) are NR2B family members activated by alitretinoin and the RXR-selective agonists bexarotene and LG100268, sometimes referred to as rexinoids. UVI3003 [8] and HX 531 [4] have been described as a pan-RXR antagonists. These receptors form RXR-RAR heterodimers and RXR-RXR homodimers [3,7].
