a G protein coupled receptor that is induced by all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA). Retinoic acids (RA) are a group of pleiotropic signaling molecules that regulate a broad range of physiologic and developmental processes. RAIG1 is expressed in lung tissue and in several lung cancer cell lines. This retinoic acid-inducible GPCR provides evidence for an interaction between retinoid and G-protein signaling pathways.
