In a search for nuclear receptors that may mediate the teratogenic effects of the potential morphogen, retinoic acid, on the early development of Xenopus we have isolated a novel Xenopus RXR that most closely resembles the mammalian beta-type RXR. Xenopus RXR beta mRNA is expressed throughout early embryogenesis, and functions as an accessory protein to enhance the DNA-binding of other members of the nuclear receptor superfamily.
