Biol Pharm Bull. 2016;39(10):1596-1603.We investigated the ability of group 15 compounds with a triphenyl substituent to bind to and activate human retinoic X receptor (RXR) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) γ and their ability to activate the receptor. Triphenylphosphine oxide (TPPO) transcriptionally activated both RXR and PPARγ. Triphenylbismuth (TPBi) transcriptionally activated PPARγ but not RXR. However, TPBi significantly inhibited RXR transcriptional activity induced by 9-cis retinoic acid (9cRA) and PPARγ transcriptional activity induced by rosiglitazone (Rosi). Read More
