This mini-review will provide an overview on the recent design principles and structure-activity-relationship of β-selective thyroid hormone receptor (TR) agonists. The prospects for the treatment of metabolic diseases as dyslipidemia with TRβ-selective ligands are considerable enough so as to avoid cardiovascular acceleration mediated through TRα.
Keywords: Nuclear hormone receptors, thyroid hormones receptors, thyroid hormones agonists, X-ray, metabolic rate, cholesterol, heart rate, structure-activity-relationship (SAR), beta-selective
