  • N-terminal AAs 192 AAs is sufficient to interact with SIRT1
  • a putative ligand-binding domain
  • a LXXLL motif and AF-2 domain involved in NR0B2 homodimerization and DAX1-NROB2 heterodimerization
  • mono polymer heteromer , dimer

    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • acting as an orphan nuclear (steroid/thyroid/retinoid) receptor
  • potential negative regulator of receptor dependent signaling pathways
  • regulator of beta acid synthesis
  • being an important component of the feedback regulatory cascade controling the conversion of cholesterol to bile acids
  • specifically inhibiting transactivation of the nuclear receptor with whom it interacts
  • acting as a steroid hormone receptor
  • acting as a transcription corepressor
  • playing an essential role in negative regulation of immune cell activity
  • having an inhibitory effect on insulin activation of hepatic fatty acid synthesis which constitutes a mechanism that would explain the beneficial effect of FGF19 on metabolic syndrome
  • having a role in mediating the reduction in lipogenic enzyme expression caused by FGF19
  • inhibits apoptosis during the monocytic differentiation by inducing CDKN1A and prolongs a cellular survival of differentiating monocytes through the transcriptional regulation of target genes of cell survival and differentiation
  • nuclear receptor that decreases the expression of Gli target genes by repressing the transcriptional activity of GLI1 and inhibiting its nuclear localization
  • can play a negative role in Hedgehog/GLI1 signaling
  • recruits SIRT1 and utilizes SIRT1 deacetylase activity to inhibit NR5A2 mediated transcriptional activation
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    text negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter
    metabolism lipid/lipoprotein
    cholesterol metabolism
    a component
  • heterodimerizing with many members of receptor superfamily including RAR, RXR, small heterodimer partner interacting with PPARx
  • heterodimerizing with LXRA leading to promoter specific repression of LXRA and CYP7A1
  • heterodimerizing with TR and NR1I3
  • DAX1-NROB2 heterodimerization
    small molecule
  • inhibiting C17A1 and NR5A2 expression
  • RARA
  • RXRA
  • THRB
  • NR5A1
  • NR5A2
  • NR1I3
  • HNF4A
  • ONECUT1 is a novel target of NR0B2 in the regulation of gluconeogenesis
  • interacting with CREBZF (entire N-terminus of NR0B2 and the middle region of SMILE-L are involved in this interaction)
  • interacts and co-localizes specifically with SIRT1 (inhibition of SIRT1 activity significantly reversed NR0B2-mediated inhibition of bile-acid synthesis by NR5A2 overexpression)
  • activation of the VDR represses hepatic NR0B2 to increase levels on CYP7A1 and reduce cholesterol
  • NPAS2 controlled the circadian rhythm of NR0B2 expression by binding rhythmically to the NR0B2 promoter, which was enhanced by nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide
