Gene: TUBA8 (tubulin alpha 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TUBA8
Name: tubulin alpha 8
Description: Predicted to have GTP binding activity. Predicted to be involved in microtubule cytoskeleton organization and mitotic cell cycle. Localizes to microtubule cytoskeleton. Implicated in complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
