Gene: AR (androgen receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AR
Name: androgen receptor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATPase binding activity; DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including androgen receptor signaling pathway; negative regulation of extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway; and regulation of macromolecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to the cytoplasm; nuclear lumen; and protein-containing complex. Implicated in several diseases, including androgen insensitivity syndrome; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; conduct disorder; reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and spinal muscular atrophy (multiple). Biomarker of ductal carcinoma in situ; hypospadias; invasive ductal carcinoma; and prostate cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
