Gene: TUBA1A (tubulin alpha 1a) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TUBA1A
Name: tubulin alpha 1a
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in microtubule cytoskeleton organization and mitotic cell cycle. Localizes to cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein granule; microtubule; and recycling endosome. Implicated in lissencephaly; microcephaly; and visual epilepsy. Biomarker of Down syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
