Can pass the lipidlayer in the cell membrane activating ligand can be generated in three ways: Classical model: synthesized in a remote endocrine cell (e.g. thyroide hormone) Made in the target cell from an apohormone (e.g. 9-cis-retinoic acid) Metabolite synthesized intracellularly in the target cell (e.g. prostaglandines) hormone + inactive receptor allosteric change active receptor binds DNA and modulate transcription Ligand-binding domain - LBD

class. Evolutionary analysis of the receptors has led to a subdivision in six different subfamilys MBV4230 Classification depending on source and type of ligand Type I: Steroid receptors MBV4230
1. Sub-family: Steroid hormone receptors First TFs (for RNAP-II) cloned: GR and ER Steroid hormones lipids with cholesterol-derived skeleton produced in adrenal cortex (ac - binyrebark), gonades (testis/ovaries), placenta known receptor ligands:
Aldosterone = mineralocorticoid with effect on salt metabolism/electrolyte balance [ac] Cortisol = glucocorticoid with effect on glucose metabolism [ac] Testosterone = androgen (male sex hormone) [testis] Estradiol = estrogen (female sex hormone) [ovaries] Progesterone [ovaries] MBV4230 Steroid hormone receptors Characteristic features of steroid receptors (SHR)
binds palindromic HSE (spacer 3 nt) 2x AGAACA - GR, MR, PR, AR 2x AGGTCA - ER binds as homodimers long A/B-domains Chaperone-complex in absence of ligand SHR
SHR - ligand: SHR associates with a multicomplex [8-10S] of chaperones (hsp-90,-70, -56) inactive, not DNA-binding, ligandreceptive conformation + ligand: hsp-complex dissociates 4S active complex able to dimerize, bind to DNA, transactivate induced transport to nucleus in specific cases chaperon-function: >inactivation MBV4230 Steroid hormone receptors The relative sizes of the human receptors indicated. The numbers above the bars indicate the percentage homology of the consensus
regions of the DNA- and ligand-binding domains MBV4230 Induced nuclear transport? Steroid import NR-Hsp90 complex In the nucleus Not general MBV4230 Induced nuclear transport?
Steroid import NR-Hsp90 complex When bound to the receptor (R) it induces a conformational change that allows it to bind the Hsp90 dimer, which acts as its chaperone. The NLS of the NR allows the R-Hsp90 complex to translocate into the nucleus. In the nucleus The steroid released from steroid-binding protein (SBP) is transported into the cytoplasm of the target cell.
ligandreceptor complex dissociates from Hsp90 and itself dimerizes. The removal of Hsp90 unmasks the DNA-binding site of the receptor,which allows it to interact with the target gene promoter. Not general Many NRs are localized in the target cell nucleus, often tightly bound to chromatin. Type II: RXR heterodimers MBV4230 2. Sub-family: RXR heterodimers Prototypiske members:
RAR [retinoic acid receptor] vitamin A metabolite VDR [vitamin D receptor] TR [thyroid hormone receptor] PPAR [prostaglandine J2] several Orphan receptors with unknown ligand Characteristic feature of the RXR-heterodimers Broader chemical variation of ligands Not all ligands are endocrine hormones
ligand-independent activation mechanisms exist bind DNA also in absence of ligand bind often to direct repeats bind as heterodimers RXR ?R MBV4230 RXR - a common partner and main regulator mediator of receptor heterodimerization high affinity DNA-binding responsivee to 9-cis retinoic acid
three subtypes RXR(+ isoforms 1 2 subtypes - products of individual genes isoforms - products of alternative splicing, alternative promoters etc. MBV4230 RXR = active or silent partner May be a silent partner without ligand-binding and response as heterodimer with VDR, TR and RAR May be an active partner responsivee to 9-cis-retinoic acid
e.g. RXR-PPAR responsivee to both ligands (synergistic) RXR ?R Active partner RXR ?R Silent partner MBV4230 Specificity in DNA-binding: the 1-5 rule
The 1-5 rule direct repeats of AGGTCA with variable spacing (n) DRn where n determines partner DR1 - RXR-RXR DR2 - RXR-RAR DR3 - RXR-VDR

From an open apo-form to a compact closed holo-form Two distinct conformations for H12 positioned in two conserved hydrophobic grooves - agonist and antagonist grooves on the surface MBV4230 Ligand-binding domain LBDs are signal-responsivee regulatory modules adopting distinct conformations as aporeceptors, holo-agonist bound or holo-antagonist bound species MBV4230
Ligand-induced conformational change Ligand binding first acts through the rearrangement of H3, thus expelling H11, leading to repositioning of H12 H12 helix MBV4230 LBD conformational change

Liberated upon ligand-binding C-term: receptor-interaction, N-term: repressor motifs Act as an adaptor between NR without ligand and the Sin3complex with HDAC activity MBV4230 Coregulators Coactivators that bind ligand-bound receptors several coactivators that stimulate ligand-dependent activation, SRC/p160 family:
SRC-1/NCoA-1 family [steroid receptor coactivator 1 / nuclear receptor coactivator 1] TIF2/GRIP1/NCoA-2 [trx.intermed. factor /glucocort. recept. interact.prot / nuclear receptor coactivator 2] pCIP/ACTR/AIB1 [p300/CBP-cointegr. ass. prot. / activator TR and RAR / amplified in breast cancer] CBP/p300 and p/CAF also coactivator for NRs Swi/Snf complex Probably multi-coactivator complexes MBV4230 SRC/p160 family HAT enzyme and interphase to other complexes CoCoA coactivator,

Corepressors c SMRT and N-CoR C-term: receptor-interaction, N-term: repressor motifs Switch absence of ligand allows binding of NCoR through two LxxxIxxxI/L motifs. Binding of agonist changes LDBconformation such that a coactivator can be recruited through the LxxLL motif.
agonist antagonist L MBV4230 Ligand-activation - a switch from an active repressor to a full activator Active repression Activation MBV4230 Even more complexes - Mediator Several coactivators for nuclear receptors have been
found to be more general than first assumed and are probably identical with or variants of a Mediator-complex TRAP - TR-associated proteins DRIP - vit.D receptor-interacting proteins Isolated as coactivator for SREBP-1a and Sp1, also coactivator for VP16, NFkB Identical with DRIP
Human Mediator Isolated as coactivator for vitamin-D receptor (VDR) Very similar to TRAP in composition ARC - activator-recruited cofactor Isolated as coactivator for the thyroid receptor (TR) Isolated as E1A-interacting multicomplex with 30 polypeptides that binds the activatordomains of E1A and VP16 (Boyer et al. 1999) CRSP, NAT and SMCC Comparison reveals many of the same subunits in many of these complexes

Coregulator function modulated by distinct signaling pathways Hypothesis: phosphorylation codes determine the functional specificity of the coregulator for distinct NRs and promoters. Specificity? MBV4230 Chain of events
Chromatin opening may communicate directly with NR-regulated promoters. AF-1 phosphorylation might serve to further consolidate ligand-dependent NR-SRC interactions or to recruit SRCs directly to the promoter in the absence of ligand. TRAP/DRIP directly contacts components of the basal trx machinery to effect initiation Binding of SRCs and CBP local HAT activity and disruption of nucleosomal structure. Kinase-mediated signaling pathways
Binding of ligand dissociation of corepressors recruitment of SWI/SNF remodeling machines certain TAFs may afford some additional input into promoter-specific NR trx. Variability Local coactivator requirements may varyfor example, a promoter in a readily accessible chromatin context may not require significant chromatin remodeling or HAT activity for assembly of PIC. Type III: Orphan receptors MBV4230 3. subfamily: dimeric orphan receptors
Definition orphan receptor large family with over 30 subfamilys dimeric OR binds both DRn and IR Typically strong constitutive activators/repressors May function independent of ligand Eks 1: hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 (HNF4)
Based on homology = nuclear receptor ligand unknown homodimer Strong constitutive activator Eks 2: COUPs dominant repressors competitive binding + repressor domain + inactive RXR-dimers Function may be to keep target genes turned off in absence of ligand? MBV4230
The hunt for unknown ligands Number of OR > number probable ligands probably several ligand-independent ORs Seminar Nurr1 active without a ligand - its LBD resembles an agonist-bound, trx active LBDs in other NRs Nurr1 LBD contains no cavity as a result of the tight packing Nurr1 lacks a 'classical' binding site for coactivators. Those forming RXR-heterodimers are candidates for ligand-dependent NRs
