Gene: Rara (retinoic acid receptor, alpha) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rara
Name: retinoic acid receptor, alpha
Description: 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); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid signaling pathway; acute myeloid leukemia pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
