GO Classification
Functions
  • zinc ion binding
  • steroid hormone receptor activity
  • steroid binding
  • sequence-specific DNA binding
  • transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding
Processes
  • signal transduction
  • gene expression
  • transcription initiation from RNA polymerase II promoter
Components
  • receptor complex
  • endoplasmic reticulum membrane
  • nucleoplasm
General FunctionZinc ion binding
Specific FunctionReceptor for both mineralocorticoids (MC) such as aldosterone and glucocorticoids (GC) such as corticosterone or cortisol. Binds to mineralocorticoid response elements (MRE) and transactivates target genes. The effect of MC is to increase ion and water transport and thus raise extracellular fluid volume and blood pressure and lower potassium levels.
