  • Hepatoprotection by the farnesoid X receptor agonist GW4064 in rat models of intra- and extrahepatic cholestasis. Yaping Liu, Jane; Binz, Mary Jo; Numerick, Steve; Dennis; Guizhen Luo; Bhasha Desai, Kathleen I.; MacKenzie, Traci A.; Mansfield, Steven A.; Kliewer, Bryan; Goodwin, Stacey A.; Jones // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Dec2003, Vol. 112 Issue 11, p1678 

    Farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is a bile acid-activated transcription factor that is a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. Fxr-null mice exhibit a phenotype similar to Byler disease, an inherited cholestatic liver disorder. In the liver, activation of FXR induces transcription of...
