Gene: OPTN (optineurin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: OPTN
Name: optineurin
CRRD ID: 736202
Description: Exhibits several functions, including Rab GTPase binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Golgi to plasma membrane protein transport; negative regulation of receptor recycling; and positive regulation of macroautophagy. Localizes to cytosol and trans-Golgi network. Implicated in Paget's disease of bone; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (multiple); and glaucoma (multiple). Biomarker of Huntington's disease; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; and progressive myoclonus epilepsy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
