- Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the appointment of Feisal Jaffer as global head, LXR
Hotels & Resorts.
The hotel, which will be known as The Biltmore, Mayfair - LXR
Hotels & Resorts, has undergone a multimillion-pound redevelopment following its closure in early July 2018.
RGX-104, an orally-administered potent small molecule agonist of the LXR
, was able to deplete MDSCs both in cancer patients participating in the dose escalation portion of the Phase 1a/b trial and in mice.
Recently, evidence shows that some kinds of cancer, such as melanoma, colon, lung, and kidney tumors inhibit the function of DCs through LXR
activation by releasing LXR
ligands or oxysterols .
StAR overexpression stimulates cholesterol efflux by activating LXR
and stimulation of ABCA1 expression.
Three, most important families of transcription factors regulating these processes could be distinguished: sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP), liver X receptors, (LXR
), and carbohydrate response element binding protein (ChREBP) [12-15].
Cholesterol homeostasis is intricately regulated by a battery of transcription factors among which LXRs
are nuclear receptors that play a crucial role in transcriptional regulation of lipid metabolism and inflammation (Ostlund, 1993) Activated LXRs
form a heterodimer with the retinoid X receptor [alpha] (RXR[alpha]), which binds to LXR
responsive elements (LXREs
) and consequently promotes target gene expression (Zelcer and Tontonoz 2006).
