Gene: RARA (retinoic acid receptor alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RARA
Name: retinoic acid receptor alpha
CRRD ID: 733999
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and protein kinase B binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to estrogen stimulus; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of leukocyte differentiation. Localizes to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; cytosol; and nuclear lumen. Implicated in acute promyelocytic leukemia. Biomarker of mood disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: NR1B1; nuclear receptor subfamily 1 group B member 1; nucleophosmin-retinoic acid receptor alpha fusion protein NPM-RAR long form; RAR; RAR-alpha; retinoic acid nuclear receptor alpha variant 1; retinoic acid nuclear receptor alpha variant 2; Retinoic acid receptor, alpha polypeptide
