Gene : BFSP1 Homo sapiens

Name  ? beaded filament structural protein 1 Cytological Location  20p12.1
Brief Description  beaded filament structural protein 1
Description  This gene encodes a lens-specific intermediate filament-like protein named filensin. The encoded protein is expressed in lens fiber cells after differentiation has begun. This protein functions as a component of the beaded filament which is a cytoskeletal structure found in lens fiber cells. Mutations in this gene are the cause of autosomal recessive cortical juvenile-onset cataract. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]
