Gene: Rorb (RAR-related orphan receptor beta) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rorb
Name: RAR-related orphan receptor beta
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of osteoblast differentiation; neural retina development; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in idiopathic generalized epilepsy 15. Is expressed in several structures, including face; hindlimb; nervous system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human RORB (RAR related orphan receptor B).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
