Gene: VDR (vitamin D receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VDR
Name: vitamin D receptor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including lithocholic acid receptor activity; nuclear receptor activity; and steroid binding activity. Contributes to DNA-binding transcription factor activity and vitamin D response element binding activity. Involved in several processes, including decidualization; negative regulation of keratinocyte proliferation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to several cellular components, including RNA polymerase II transcription regulator complex; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); liver disease (multiple); melanoma (multiple); and tuberculosis (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B; basal cell carcinoma; cholangitis (multiple); esophagus adenocarcinoma; and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
