Gene: TECTA (tectorin alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TECTA
Name: tectorin alpha
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix structural constituent. Predicted to be involved in cell-matrix adhesion and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to the extracellular exosome. Implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 12; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 21; and sensorineural hearing loss.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: alpha-tectorin; DFNA12; DFNA8; DFNB21
