Gene: FTL (ferritin light chain) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FTL
Name: ferritin light chain
RGD ID: 1346340
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity and iron ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in intracellular sequestering of iron ion. Localizes to autolysosome and intracellular ferritin complex. Implicated in basal ganglia disease; hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome; neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 3; and neurodegenerative disease. Biomarker of COVID-19.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ferritin L subunit; ferritin L-chain; ferritin light polypeptide-like 3; ferritin, light polypeptide; LFTD; MGC71996; NBIA3; neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 3
