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. The gene expresses at least two transcript variants; one additional transcript has been described but its full length nature has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
