Gene: AHR (aryl hydrocarbon receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AHR
Name: aryl hydrocarbon receptor
RGD ID: 731071
Description: Exhibits several functions, including Hsp90 protein binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cAMP-mediated signaling; cellular response to organic cyclic compound; and regulation of B cell proliferation. Localizes to cytosol; nucleus; and protein-containing complex. Implicated in retinitis pigmentosa. Biomarker of pancreatic cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ah receptor; AH-receptor; aromatic hydrocarbon receptor; bHLHe76; class E basic helix-loop-helix protein 76; RP85
