Summaries for RARB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RARB Gene

  • This gene encodes retinoic acid receptor beta, a member of the thyroid-steroid hormone receptor superfamily of nuclear transcriptional regulators. This receptor localizes to the cytoplasm and to subnuclear compartments. It binds retinoic acid, the biologically active form of vitamin A which mediates cellular signalling in embryonic morphogenesis, cell growth and differentiation. It is thought that this protein limits growth of many cell types by regulating gene expression. The gene was first identified in a hepatocellular carcinoma where it flanks a hepatitis B virus integration site. Alternate promoter usage and differential splicing result in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]

GeneCards Summary for RARB Gene

RARB (Retinoic Acid Receptor Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RARB include microphthalmia, syndromic 12 and teratocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and protein complex binding. An important paralog of this gene is NR4A2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RARB Gene

  • Receptor for retinoic acid. Retinoic acid receptors bind as heterodimers to their target response elements in response to their ligands, all-trans or 9-cis retinoic acid, and regulate gene expression in various biological processes. The RXR/RAR heterodimers bind to the retinoic acid response elements (RARE) composed of tandem 5-AGGTCA-3 sites known as DR1-DR5. In the absence or presence of hormone ligand, acts mainly as an activator of gene expression due to weak binding to corepressors. In concert with RARG, required for skeletal growth, matrix homeostasis and growth plate function.

Tocris Summary for RARB Gene

  • Retinoic acid receptors (RARs) are nuclear hormone receptors of the NR1B class, which function as heterodimers with retinoid X receptors (RXRs). There are three distinct RAR subtypes: RARalpha, present in most tissue types; and RARbeta and RARgamma, with more selective expression.
