NR6A1 (human)

NR6A1 Orphan nuclear receptor. Binds to a response element containing the sequence 5'-TCAAGGTCA-3'. May be involved in the regulation of gene expression in germ cell development during gametogenesis. Homodimer. Interacts with UIMC1. Shows highest expression in the germ cells of the adult testis. Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR6 subfamily. 5 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: DNA-binding; Nuclear receptor
Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 9q33.3
Cellular Component: nucleoplasm; transcription factor complex
Molecular Function: ligand-dependent nuclear receptor activity; protein homodimerization activity; DNA binding; zinc ion binding; sequence-specific DNA binding; steroid hormone receptor activity
Biological Process: cell proliferation; transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter; intracellular receptor-mediated signaling pathway; gamete generation; steroid hormone mediated signaling; spermatogenesis; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; gene expression; negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter
Reference #:  Q15406 (UniProtKB)
