Retinoic acid receptors (nomenclature as agreed by the NC-IUPHAR Subcommittee on Nuclear Hormone Receptors [1,6]) are nuclear hormone receptors of the NR1B family activated by the vitamin A-derived agonists tretinoin (ATRA) and alitretinoin, and the RAR-selective synthetic agonists TTNPB and adapalene. BMS493 is a family-selective antagonist [7].
