Gene: Epb42 (erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Epb42
Name: erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.2
Description: Predicted to have protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including hemoglobin metabolic process; iron ion homeostasis; and spleen development. Localizes to the cortical cytoskeleton and membrane. Used to study hereditary spherocytosis type 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary spherocytosis and hereditary spherocytosis type 5. Is expressed in several structures, including blood island; cardiovascular system; immune system; liver; and metanephros. Orthologous to human EPB42 (erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
