The ligand binding domain of DAX1 protein, a nuclear receptor lacking DNA binding domain
The ligand binding domain of the Small Heterodimer Partner (SHP): SHP is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily. SHP has a ligand binding domain, but lacks the DNA binding domain, typical to almost all of the nuclear receptors. It functions as a transcriptional coregulator by directly interacting with other nuclear receptors through its AF-2 motif. The closest relative of SHP is DAX1 and they can form heterodimer. SHP is an orphan receptor, lacking an identified ligand.
