Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Contributes to transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of branching involved in prostate gland morphogenesis; and regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to the RNA polymerase II transcription factor complex. Used to study congenital heart disease; dilated cardiomyopathy; and systemic lupus erythematosus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; liver; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human RXRA (retinoid X receptor alpha).
