Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits nuclear receptor activity and steroid hormone receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; paracrine signaling; and progesterone receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including axon terminus; dendritic spine; and perikaryon. Is expressed in brain; genitourinary system; lung; and thymus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in endometriosis; hyperprolactinemia; and obesity. Orthologous to human PGR (progesterone receptor).
