Gene: CRYAA (crystallin alpha A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CRYAA
Name: crystallin alpha A
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity; structural molecule activity; and unfolded protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of intracellular transport; protein stabilization; and visual perception. Localizes to cytosol; nucleoplasm; and protein-containing complex. Implicated in cataract 9 multiple types.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: alpha crystallin A chain; alpha-crystallin A chain; CRYA1; crystallin, alpha A; crystallin, alpha-1; CTRCT9; heat shock protein beta-4; HSPB4; human alphaA-crystallin (CRYA1)
