Gene: Tecta (tectorin alpha) Mus musculus
Symbol: Tecta
Name: tectorin alpha
Description: Exhibits extracellular matrix structural constituent. Predicted to be involved in sensory perception of sound. Localizes to extracellular matrix. Used to study autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 12. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 12; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 21; and sensorineural hearing loss. Is expressed in inner ear. Orthologous to human TECTA (tectorin alpha); INTERACTS WITH 3,3',5,5'-tetrabromobisphenol A; paracetamol; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
