ER-alpha (human)

ER-alpha a nuclear hormone receptor and transcription factor. Regulates gene expression and affects cellular proliferation and differentiation in target tissues. Two splice-variant isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: DNA-binding; Nuclear receptor
Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 6q25.1
Cellular Component: cytoplasm; nuclear chromatin; nucleoplasm; nucleus; plasma membrane
Molecular Function: ATPase binding; beta-catenin binding; chromatin binding; enzyme binding; estrogen response element binding; identical protein binding; protein binding; steroid binding; steroid hormone receptor activity; transcription factor binding
