Retinoic acid functions through its interaction with the nuclear protein, retinoic acid receptor (RAR). RAR belongs to the steroid and thyroid hormone superfamily of nuclear receptor proteins which exert their effects by binding to specific DNA response elements, thus regulating gene expression in target cells. RAR exists as three major subtypes: alpha, beta and gamma. Two main isoforms of RAR gamma exist: RAR gamma-1 has been found to be predomitly expressed in skin, while RAR gamma-2 has been found early in embryogenesis and in embryonal carcinoma cells. RAR gamma is also known as RARD. The corresponding gene for the retinoic acid receptor gamma 2 is NR1B3.
