LXR-beta Nuclear receptor that exhibits a ligand-dependent transcriptional activation activity. Binds preferentially to double-stranded oligonucleotide direct repeats having the consensus half-site sequence 5'-AGGTCA-3' and 4-nt spacing (DR-4). Regulates cholesterol uptake through MYLIP-dependent ubiquitination of LDLR, VLDLR and LRP8; DLDLR and LRP8. Interplays functionally with RORA for the regulation of genes involved in liver metabolism. Plays an anti-inflammatory role during the hepatic acute phase response by acting as a corepressor: inhibits the hepatic acute phase response by preventing dissociation of the N-Cor corepressor complex. Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily. Ubiquitous. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
