Ligand-activated transcription factor. Activated by high concentrations of 9-cis-retinoic acid and all-trans-retinoic acid, but not by dexamethasone, cortisol or progesterone (in vitro). Regulation of the apolipoprotein A-I gene transcription. Binds to DNA site A. Interacts with SQSTM1. Binds DNA as a dimer; homodimer or heterodimer with NR2F6. Interacts with NCOA1, NCOA2, NCOA3 and PPARGC1A. Interacts with ZFPM2. Ubiquitous. Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR2 subfamily. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
