Abstract

The last ten years much attention has been focused on the finding of non-steroidal ligands for steroidal nuclear receptors for reasons such as diminishing cross-reactivity to eliminate side effect profiles, changing physicochemical properties which might cause different tissue distribution profiles and altering binding modes which influence the binding of cofactors. Compounds with a selective functionality profile are referred to as selective nuclear receptor modulators (e.g., SARMs or SPRMs). In the following paragraphs non-steroidal ligands which have full or partial agonistic activity will be described for the following receptors: PR, GR, AR, LXR and FXR.
