The Nurr1 gene  encodes  a  member  of  the  steroid-thyroid hormone- retinoid receptor superfamily. The encoded protein may act as a transcription factor. Mutations in this gene have been associated with disorders  related  to  dopaminergic dysfunction,  including Parkinson's. 

Nurr1 is a stem cell marker and cooperates with PITX3 to promote terminal maturation of murine and human embryonic stem cell cultures to a midbrain dopamine neuron phenotype.  In addition, Nurr1 is involved in the regulation of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which may be linked to and associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
