The pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been mostly linked to aberrant amyloid beta (Aβ) and tau proteins metabolism, disturbed lipid/cholesterol homeostasis, and progressive neuroinflammation. Liver X receptors (LXR) are ligand-activated transcription factors, best known as the key regulators of cholesterol metabolism and transport. In addition, LXR signaling has been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory properties. In this brief review, we focus on the outcome of studies implicating LXR in the pathogenesis, modulation, and therapy of AD.
