Gene: Ush2a (usherin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ush2a
Name: usherin
Description: Predicted to have collagen binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and myosin binding activity. Involved in retina development in camera-type eye. Localizes to stereocilium and synapse. Colocalizes with several cellular components, including neuronal cell body; photoreceptor connecting cilium; and photoreceptor inner segment. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome (multiple); nonsyndromic deafness; and retinitis pigmentosa (multiple). Orthologous to human USH2A (usherin); PARTICIPATES IN auditory mechanotransduction pathway; retinitis pigmentosa pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
