the human glucocorticoid receptor DNA binding factor, which associates with the promoter region of the glucocorticoid receptor gene (hGR gene), is a repressor of glucocorticoid receptor transcription. May participate in the regulation of retinal development and degeneration. May transduce signals from p21-ras to the nucleus, acting via the ras GTP-ase activating protein (GAP). May also act as a tumor suppressor. Two splice variant isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
