Liver X receptors (LXRs) are nuclear receptors (NR) that belong to the family of ligand-activated transcription factors; there are two isoforms, LXRa and LXR[beta].
Steers also had lower hepatic mRNA levels of hepatic LXRa. The LXRs are nuclear receptors that are activated by endogenous oxysterols, oxidized derivatives of cholesterol (Edwards et al., 2002).
Liver X receptor alpha (LXRa) is a nuclear receptor that play a crucial role in regulating the expression of genes involve in lipid metabolism.
LXRa is detected at high levels in metabolic organs such as liver, adipose tissues, kidney, intestine, and spleen [10]; in contrast, LXR[beta] is ubiquitously expressed, the basis for an original name as "ubiquitous receptor" [11].
