Gene: LAMA2 (laminin subunit alpha 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LAMA2
Name: laminin subunit alpha 2
CRRD ID: 1318918
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix structural constituent. Predicted to be involved in animal organ morphogenesis; axon guidance; and tissue development. Localizes to basement membrane. Implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy; congenital merosin-deficient muscular dystrophy 1A; muscular dystrophy; and myopia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: laminin M chain; laminin subunit alpha-2; laminin, alpha 2; laminin-12 subunit alpha; laminin-2 subunit alpha; laminin-4 subunit alpha; LAMM; MDC1A; merosin heavy chain; mutant laminin subunit alpha 2
