retinoid X receptor

receptor for retinoic acids; has less affinity for retinoic acid than the retinoic acid receptors; function is not yet well understood.

retinoid X receptor

One of 2 receptors for retinoids; RXR plays a key role in organ development, in particular of the skin. Cf Retinoic acid receptor.

The harmful effects of the chemical on the liver and the nervous and immune systems in mammals are well known, but its powerful effects on the cellular components known as retinoid X receptors (RXRs) in a range of species are a recent discovery.
Blumberg and colleagues observed that estimates of health effects based on structure-function relationships--typically used to gauge the effects of a group of chemicals--would not have predicted the observed effects of organotins since organotin structures do not resemble those of other compounds that activate retinoid X receptors and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor [gamma].
