Gene : CHIA Homo sapiens

Name  ? chitinase acidic Cytological Location  1p13.2
Brief Description  chitinase acidic
Description  The protein encoded by this gene degrades chitin, which is found in the cell wall of most fungi as well as in arthropods and some nematodes. The encoded protein can also stimulate interleukin 13 expression, and variations in this gene can lead to asthma susceptibility. Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]
