Retinoid receptor

Retinoid receptors are nuclear receptors (a class of proteins) that bind to retinoids. When bound to a retinoid, they act as transcription factors, altering the expression of genes with corresponding response elements.

Subtypes include:

  • Retinoic acid receptors (RARs)
  • Retinoid x receptors (RXRs)
