Progesterone receptor (PGR) gene is associated with action of the hormone progesterone, which is involved in egg cells development in humans and other mammals [R], as well as in maintaining healthy pregnancy [R].

PR-A inhibits most hormone receptors, whereas PR-B is an activator of gene activity [R].
