Bexarotene is a highly selective retinoid X receptor (RXR) agonist. It is an antineoplastic agent, already approved as an oral antineoplastic agent for cutaneous T cell lymphoma and being investigated against other cancers ......by Affix Scientific
Bexarotene is a retinoid specifically selective for retinoid X receptors, used as an oral antineoplastic agent in the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. ......by BOC Sciences
Bexarotene is a synthetic retinoid analog with specific affinity for the retinoid X receptor and belongs to a group of compounds called rexinoids. It is an oral, noncytotoxic drug that was approved in Europe and in the U.S.A. for the treatment of refractory advanced-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. The receptor-selective retinoids might be particularly useful in preventing ER-negative breast cancer. ......by BioVision, Inc.,
Bexarotene, also known as LGD-1069, is a synthetic retinoic acid agent with potential antineoplastic, chemopreventive, teratogenic and embryotoxic properties. Bexarotene selectively binds to and activates retinoid X receptors (RXRs), thereby inducing changes in gene expression that lead to cell differentiation, decreased cell proliferation, apoptosis of some cancer cell types, and tumor regression. ......by MedKoo Biosciences, Inc.

Potent and selective RXR agonist (EC50 values are 24, 25 and 33 nM for RXRβ, RXRγ and RXRα, respectively). Exhibits >300-fold selectivity for RXR over RAR receptors. Inhibits tumor cell invasion and migration in vitro, and inhibits metastasis and angiogenesis in mouse models. Also promotes brown adipogenic differentiation and induces brown adipogenic reprogramming from myoblasts. ......by Tocris Bioscience Inc.
