Gene: Cryaa (crystallin, alpha A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cryaa
Name: crystallin, alpha A
CRRD ID: 2413
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including lens development in camera-type eye; multicellular organism aging; and response to lead ion. Localizes to cytoplasm. Used to study cataract. Biomarker of cataract; galactosemia; and ocular hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 9 multiple types. Orthologous to several human genes including CRYAA2 (crystallin alpha A2); PARTICIPATES IN Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated degradation pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (R)-lipoic acid; 5-azacytidine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Acry-1; alpha-crystallin A chain; Crya1; Crystallin alpha polypeptide A; Crystallin, alpha polypeptide A
