Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 the cytoplasm; neuron projection; and perikaryon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in endometriosis; hyperprolactinemia; and obesity. Orthologous to human PGR (progesterone receptor).
