1998). Interestingly, as seen in Table 3, the ligand-binding affinity of RXR tetramers is about one-tenth that of dimers and monomers. It has also been reported that ligand-induced dissociation of RXR tetramers is characterized by a pronounced positive cooperativity (Fig. 4). , that unliganded tetrameric RXR exists in a low-affinity state, and that binding of a ligand to one subunit within tetramers leads to a conformational change that is communicated to the remaining subunits resulting both in an increase in their ligand-binding affinity and in a disruption of protein-protein interactions that stabilize the tetramer (Fig.
Two types and several isoforms of these proteins, the retinoic acid receptors (RARs) and the retinoid X receptors (RXRs) have been identified. RARs can bind and are activated by all-trans-RA and by 9-cis-RA, while RXRs bind the 9-cis isomer exclusively. These proteins serve as ligand-responsive transcription factors. They associate as dimers with particular recognition sequences (response elements) in the promoter regions of target genes and, upon binding of their ligands, either activate or repress transcription (reviewed in MANGELSDORF et al.
