Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity; RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and retinoid X receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of apoptotic process; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus and transcription regulator complex. Colocalizes with nuclear chromatin. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and limb. Orthologous to human RARG (retinoic acid receptor gamma).
