Gene: GJB6 (gap junction protein beta 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GJB6
Name: gap junction protein beta 6
Description: Exhibits cytoskeletal protein binding activity and gap junction channel activity involved in cell communication by electrical coupling. Involved in gap junction assembly; gap junction-mediated intercellular transport; and transmembrane transport. Localizes to actin filament and gap junction. Implicated in Clouston syndrome; autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 3B; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1A; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1B; and ectodermal dysplasia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
