Potentiating neurosteroids are some of the most efficacious modulators of the mammalian GABA(A) receptor. One of the crucial interactions may be between the C20 ketone group (D-ring substituent at C17) of the neurosteroid, and the N407 and Y410 residues in

Constitutive androstane receptor (CAR) and pregnane X receptor (PXR) are members of the nuclear receptor superfamily that regulate target gene transcription in a ligand-dependent manner. CAR and PXR have a rather broad, overlapping set of ligands that range from natural

The nuclear receptor Constitutive Androstane Receptor (CAR) binds DNA as a heterodimer with the retinoic-X receptor and activates gene transcription. Previously, in vitro studies have shown that the testosterone metabolites, androstenol and androstenol, inhibit the constitutive transcriptional activity of CAR

The genes encoding the first two enzymes of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway, acyl-CoA oxidase (AOx) and enoyl-CoA hydratase/3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (HD), contain upstream cis-acting regulatory regions termed peroxisome proliferator response elements (PPRE). Transcription of these genes is mediated through the binding

Nuclear receptors constitutive androstane receptor (CAR) and pregnane X receptor (PXR) cross talk and serve as xenobiotic sensors to form a safety net against the toxic effects of harmful substances. Retinoid x receptor alpha (RXRalpha) dimerizes with CAR and PXR.
