Gene: Ush2a (usherin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ush2a
Name: usherin
Description: Exhibits collagen binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and myosin binding activity. Involved in establishment of protein localization; neuron differentiation; and photoreceptor cell maintenance. Localizes to several cellular components, including the USH2 complex; periciliary membrane compartment; and stereocilia ankle link complex. Predicted to colocalize with the neuronal cell body and terminal bouton. Used to study Usher syndrome type 2A. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome (multiple); nonsyndromic deafness; and retinitis pigmentosa (multiple). Is expressed in sensory organ and testis. Orthologous to human USH2A (usherin); PARTICIPATES IN auditory mechanotransduction pathway; retinitis pigmentosa pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene; methamphetamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
