General annotation (Comments)

Function

Receptor for retinoic acid. Retinoic acid receptors bind as heterodimers to their target response elements in response to their ligands, all-trans or 9-cis retinoic acid, and regulate gene expression in various biological processes. The rar/rxr heterodimers bind to the retinoic acid response elements (RARE) composed of tandem 5'-AGGTCA-3' sites known as DR1-DR5. The high affinity ligand for rxrs is 9-cis retinoic acid By similarity.

Subunit structure

Homodimer By similarity. Heterodimer; with a rar molecule By similarity. Binds DNA preferentially as a rar/rxr heterodimer By similarity.

Subcellular location

Nucleus By similarity.

Developmental stage

Expressed both maternally and zygotically. In the embryo, expressed in the posterior hindbrain and anterior spinal cord at the 5-somite stage, with expression increasing through to the 15-somite stage. At the 15-somite stage, also expressed in the tail bud region. At the 18-somite stage, also found in the third neural crest stream. Ref.1 Ref.3

Domain

Composed of three domains: a modulating N-terminal domain, a DNA-binding domain and a C-terminal ligand-binding domain.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR2 subfamily.

Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.

Sequence caution

The sequence ABM89229.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation. Translation N-terminally shortened.
