Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; gamete generation; and regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including dendrite; neuronal cell body; and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute promyelocytic leukemia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human RARA (retinoic acid receptor alpha).
