Nuclear receptors (NRs), as a large family of highly related transcription factors, have been known for more than two decades to engage in considerable crosstalk between family members. NRs within a given subfamily are known to heterodimerize with each other (e.g., ERRa and ERRb) as well as between subfamilies, the most notable of which are the numerous heterodimeric partners of RXR. However, there is an increasing amount of evidence indicating that other NR-NR interactions are relevant and some of the previously identified interactions have a new found importance. This session will explore novel NR-NR interactions with a special emphasis on those that affect metabolism and development.
