Gene: NHS (NHS actin remodeling regulator) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NHS
Name: NHS actin remodeling regulator
Description: This gene encodes a protein containing four conserved nuclear localization signals. The encoded protein functions in eye, tooth, craniofacial and brain development, and it can regulate actin remodeling and cell morphology. Mutations in this gene have been shown to cause Nance-Horan syndrome, and also X-linked cataract-40. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
