Gene: ELN (elastin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ELN
Name: elastin
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix binding activity and extracellular matrix constituent conferring elasticity. Involved in outflow tract morphogenesis. Localizes to the elastic fiber. Implicated in several diseases, including aortic disease (multiple); cutis laxa (multiple); retinal disease (multiple); rheumatic disease (multiple); and vasculitis (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including Williams-Beuren syndrome; eye disease (multiple); photosensitivity disease; pseudoxanthoma elasticum; and thromboangiitis obliterans.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ADCL1; elastin (supravalvular aortic stenosis, Williams-Beuren syndrome); FLJ38671; FLJ43523; SVAS; tropoelastin; WBS; WS
