Gene: Rarb (retinoic acid receptor, beta) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rarb
Name: retinoic acid receptor, beta
Description: Exhibits drug binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and retinoid X receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of neuron differentiation; regulation of myelination; and retinoic acid receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asbestos-related lung carcinoma; lung adenocarcinoma; lung non-small cell carcinoma; lung small cell carcinoma; and syndromic microphthalmia. Orthologous to human RARB (retinoic acid receptor beta); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid signaling pathway; non-small cell lung carcinoma pathway; small cell lung carcinoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
