family of nuclear transcription factors, most of which are receptors for hormones of the steroid family, for example androgen, oestrogen, glucocorticoid, mineralocorticoid, progesterone, retinoic acid, ecdysone, thyroid hormone and the drosophila transcription factors knirps, ultraspiracle and seven up. This family contains a conserved domain (the steroid finger motif) containing two C4 type zinc fingers.
