This gene product belongs to the nuclear receptor superfamily members of which are transcription factors characterized by a ligand-binding domain and a DNA-binding domain. The encoded protein is a transcriptional regulator of the cytochrome P450 gene CYP3A4 binding to the response element of the CYP3A4 promoter as a heterodimer with the 9-cis retinoic acid receptor RXR. It is activated by a range of compounds that induce CYP3A4 including dexamethasone and rifampicin. Several alternatively spliced transcripts encoding different isoforms some of which use non-AUG (CUG) translation initiation codon have been described for this gene. Additional transcript variants exist however they have not been fully characterized. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
