|Entrez Gene ID
|nuclear receptor subfamily 4, group A, member 3
|General protein information
|Mus musculus(house mouse)
|This gene encodes a member of the NR4A subfamily of nuclear hormone receptors that bind to DNA and modulate gene expression. The encoded protein has been implicated in T and B lymphocyte apoptosis, and immune cell proliferation. Mice lacking the encoded protein exhibit partial bidirectional circling behavior and inner ear dysfunction. Disruption of this gene in mice also results in defective hippocampal axonal growth and postnatal neuronal cell death. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2015].
