Nuclear receptor-interacting protein 1 (NRIP1) also known as receptor-interacting protein 140 (RIP140) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NRIP1 gene.[5][6]


Nuclear receptor interacting protein 1 (NRIP1) is a nuclear protein that specifically interacts with the hormone-dependent activation domain AF2 of nuclear receptors. Also known as RIP140, this protein is a key regulator which modulates transcriptional activity of a variety of transcription factors, including the estrogen receptor.[7]

RIP140 has an important role in regulating lipid and glucose metabolism,[8] and regulates gene expression in metabolic tissues including heart,[9] skeletal muscle,[10] and liver.[11] A major role for RIP140 in adipose tissue is to block the expression of genes involved in energy dissipation and mitochondrial uncoupling, including uncoupling protein 1 and carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1b.[12]

Estrogen-related receptor alpha (ERRa) can activate RIP140 during adipogenesis, by means of directly binding to an estrogen receptor element/ERR element and indirectly through Sp1 binding to the proximal promoter.[13]

RIP140 suppresses the expression of mitochondrial proteins succinate dehydrogenase complex b and CoxVb and acts as a negative regulator of glucose uptake in mice.[14]

Knockout studies

Knockout mice that completely lack the RIP140 molecule are lean and stay lean, even on a rich diet.[15]

Knockout mice (females) are also infertile because they fail to ovulate.[16] Failure of ovulation in these mice is caused by lack of cumulus expansion and altered expression of various genes, including amphiregulin, in ovarian follicles.[17][18]

Clinical significance

RIP140 is part of the chain by which tumors can cause cachexia.[19][20]

Levels of RIP140 expression in various tissues varies during aging in mice, suggesting changes in metabolic function.[21] RIP140 is implicated in certain human disease processes. In morbid obesity, RIP140 levels are down-regulated in visceral adipose tissue.[22] In breast cancer, RIP140 is involved in regulation of E2F1, an oncogene which discriminates between luminal and basal types of tumours. RIP140 has an influence upon cancer phenotype and prognosis.[23] In addition, RIP140 has a role in inflammation, since it acts as a coactivator for NFkappaB/RelA-dependent cytokine gene expression. Lack of RIP140 leads to an inhibition of proinflammatory pathways in macrophages.[24]

Nuclear receptor-interacting protein 1 (also known as nuclear factor RIP140) modulates transcriptional activation by steroid receptors such as NR3C1, NR3C2 and ESR1 [PUBMED:7641693]. It also modulates transcriptional repression by nuclear hormone receptors [PUBMED:10364267] and clock gene expression [PUBMED:21628546]. It consists of four distinct autonomous repression domains [PUBMED:14736873].

This domain is the fourth (C-terminal) repression domain of nuclear receptor-interacting protein 1 [PUBMED:14736873, PUBMED:15060175].
