Gene: Whrn (whirlin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Whrn
Name: whirlin
Description: Exhibits protein heterodimerization activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception of sound; nervous system development; and paranodal junction maintenance. Localizes to several cellular components, including the USH2 complex; cytoskeleton; and periciliary membrane compartment. Predicted to colocalize with the neuronal cell body. Used to study Usher syndrome type 2D and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 31. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome type 2D; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 31; and sensorineural hearing loss. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; cervical intervertebral disc; forelimb bud; sensory organ; and thymus. Orthologous to human WHRN (whirlin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
