Organism Homo sapiens (human)



Summary This gene encodes a protein that contains laminin EGF motifs, a pentaxin domain, and many fibronectin type III motifs. The protein is found in the basement membrane, and may be important in development and homeostasis of the inner ear and retina. Mutations within this gene have been associated with Usher syndrome type IIa and retinitis pigmentosa. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneRIFs: Gene References Into Functions What's a GeneRIF?

What is the normal function of the USH2A gene?

The USH2A gene provides instructions for making a protein called usherin. Usherin is an important component of basement membranes, which are thin, sheet-like structures that separate and support cells in many tissues. Usherin is found in the inner ear and the layer of light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (the retina). Although the function of usherin has not been well established, studies suggest that it is part of a group of proteins (a protein complex) that plays an important role in inner ear and retinal development. In these locations, the protein complex may also be involved in the function of synapses, which are junctions between nerve cells where cell-to-cell communication occurs.
