LXR-A belongs to the Liver X Receptor family that encodes highly homologous transcription factors. Like the highly homologous LXR-B, LXR-A forms heterodimers with the retinoic acid receptor RXRalpha, function as sensors for cellular oxysterols which when activated, increase the expression of genes that control sterol and fatty acid metabolism and homeostasis. Recent experiments have indicated that the LXRs can also modulate both innate and adaptive immune responses. Human and mouse tumors produce LXR ligands that inhibit CCR7 expression on maturing dendritic cells (DCs), thereby allowing tumor immunoescape. In mouse models, it was shown that ablating LXR-A signaling led to an immune-mediated strong inhibition of tumor growth, suggesting that manipulation of this pathway may be a viable anti-cancer approach.
