Term Detail
GO term:steroid hormone receptor activity
GO id:GO:0003707
Definition:Combining with a steroid hormone and transmitting the signal within the cell to initiate a change in cell activity or function.
CommentsSome steroid hormone receptors reside in the plasma membrane and signal through second messengers or other intracellular signal transduction pathways. For steroid hormone receptors that act in the nucleus to regulate transcription, consider also annotating to the terms: ligand-activated sequence-specific DNA binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity ; GO:0038049' or ligand-activated RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding transcription factor activity ; GO:0038049'.
