Gene: Ahr (aryl-hydrocarbon receptor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ahr
Name: aryl-hydrocarbon receptor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including E-box binding activity; aryl hydrocarbon receptor binding activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; lymphocyte homeostasis; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to cytosol and nucleus. Used to study congenital nystagmus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; lung; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AHR (aryl hydrocarbon receptor).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
