Gene: Cryaa (crystallin, alpha A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cryaa
Name: crystallin, alpha A
CRRD ID: 10399
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; structural molecule activity; and unfolded protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including camera-type eye morphogenesis; regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; and tubulin complex assembly. Localizes to cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; eye; genitourinary system; heart; and nervous system. Used to study cataract 9 multiple types. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 9 multiple types. Orthologous to several human genes including CRYAA2 (crystallin alpha A2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
