Gene Summary

Enables several functions, including androgen binding activity; androgen receptor binding activity; and nuclear receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus; mating; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Located in several cellular components, including axon; dendrite; and nucleus. Used to study hypertension; osteoporosis; prostate adenocarcinoma; prostate cancer; and prostatic hypertrophy. Biomarker of acute kidney failure and androgen insensitivity syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; conduct disorder; disorder of sexual development (multiple); reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and spinal muscular atrophy (multiple). Orthologous to human AR (androgen receptor). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
