Gene: WHRN (whirlin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: WHRN
Name: whirlin
Description: Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in retina homeostasis; sensory perception of light stimulus; and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Predicted to colocalize with the neuronal cell body; photoreceptor connecting cilium; and photoreceptor inner segment. Implicated in Usher syndrome type 2D; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 31; and sensorineural hearing loss.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: autosomal recessive deafness type 31 protein; CASK-interacting protein CIP98; CIP98; deafness, autosomal recessive 31; DFNB31; DKFZp434N014; KIAA1526; PDZD7B; RP11-9M16.1; USH2D; WI
