Retinoid related orphan receptor alpha, also known as RORα, is a NR1 Thyroid Hormone Like Receptor. Three different subtypes have been discovered: RORα, RORβ, and RORγ. RORα plays a key role in the development of the cerebellum. The deletion of RORα in mice causes severe impairment in the differentiation of cerebellar Purkinje neurons and results in the "staggerer" phenotype. RORα has been suggested to participate in the regulation of a number of other physiological processes, which include bone formation. Recently, RORα was reported to regulate lymphocyte development and mediate Th17 differentiation synergistically with RORγ.Product Details

This antibody does not recognize human.
AB_2566748 (BioLegend Cat. No. 683102)
- 523 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 59 kD. RORs contain four major functional domains: an amino-terminal domain, DNA domain (DBD), a hinge domain, and a ligand-binding domain (LBD).
- RORα can bind as a monomer or homodimer to hormone response elements upstream of several genes to enhance the expression of those genes.
- RORα interacts with p300, beta-catenin, HIF1A, NCOA2, CEBPB, FOXP3, and NRIP1.
