|General protein information
|Mus musculus(house mouse)
|This gene encodes a member of the nuclear hormone receptor family of proteins. The encoded orphan receptor lacks a DNA binding domain but modulates gene expression by interacting with other hormone receptors to competitively inhibit binding of coactivators while also acting as a transcriptional corepressor. The encoded receptor may regulate bile acid synthesis and sexual maturation in males. Homozygous knockout mice exhibit accumulation of bile acids, reduced levels of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and in male mice, earlier testicular maturation.
