Abstract Members of the nuclear receptor superfamily of ligand-dependent transcription factors regulate diverse aspects of immunity and inflammation by both positively and negatively regulating gene expression. Here, we review recent studies providing insights into the distinct mechanisms that enable nuclear receptors to antagonize pro-inflammatory programmes of gene expression in macrophages and T cells by altering the turnover or recruitment of co-repressors and co-activators in a gene-specific manner. These nuclear receptor-dependent transrepression pathways are proposed to have roles in controlling the initiation, magnitude and duration of pro-inflammatory gene expression and are amenable to pharmacological manipulation.
