THRB (Thyroid Hormone Receptor Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with THRB include Thyroid Hormone Resistance, Selective Pituitary and Thyroid Hormone Resistance, Generalized, Autosomal Dominant . Among its related pathways are Thyroid hormone signaling pathway and Gene Expression . Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and enzyme binding . An important paralog of this gene is THRA .
Many hormones and their structural and functional analogs are used as medication . The most commonly prescribed hormones are estrogens and progestogens (as methods of hormonal contraception and as HRT ),  thyroxine (as levothyroxine , for hypothyroidism ) and steroids (for autoimmune diseases and several respiratory disorders ).
