Gene: Rxra (retinoid X receptor alpha) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rxra
Name: retinoid X receptor alpha
RGD ID: 3610
Description: Exhibits protein domain specific binding activity and retinoic acid receptor binding activity. Contributes to double-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including response to retinoic acid; response to selenium ion; and response to vitamin. Localizes to axon and nucleus. Biomarker of alcoholic cardiomyopathy and prostate carcinoma in situ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human RXRA (retinoid X receptor alpha); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid signaling pathway; bile acid transport pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: nuclear receptor subfamily 2 group B member 1; retinoic acid receptor RXR-alpha
