Gene: Gjb6 (gap junction protein, beta 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gjb6
Name: gap junction protein, beta 6
Description: Predicted to have cytoskeletal protein binding activity and gap junction channel activity involved in cell communication by electrical coupling. Involved in ear morphogenesis and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to the gap junction. Used to study Clouston syndrome and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1A. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 3B; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1A; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1B; and ectodermal dysplasia. Is expressed in bladder; urinary system; and urothelium of bladder. Orthologous to human GJB6 (gap junction protein beta 6); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene; Benzo[k]fluoranthene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AA958971; connexin 30; connexin-30; Cx30; D14Bwg0506e; gap junction beta-6 protein; gap junction membrane channel protein beta 6
