Gene: Thrb (thyroid hormone receptor beta) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Thrb
Name: thyroid hormone receptor beta
Description: Exhibits double-stranded DNA binding activity, nuclear receptor activity, and protein homodimerization activity; involved in several processes, including embryonic organ development, positive regulation of cell population proliferation, and regulation of lipid metabolic process; predicted to colocalize with the nuclear chromatin; used to study breast cancer; orthologous to human THRB (thyroid hormone receptor beta); INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (RS)-amphetamine; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
