Gene Information

Crystallins are separated into two classes: taxon-specific or enzyme and ubiquitous. The latter class constitutes the major proteins of vertebrate eye lens and maintains the transparency and refractive index of the lens. Since lens central fiber cells lose their nuclei during development these crystallins are made and then retained throughout life making them extremely stable proteins. Mammalian lens crystallins are divided into alpha beta and gamma families; beta and gamma crystallins are also considered as a superfamily. Alpha and beta families are further divided into acidic and basic groups. Seven protein regions exist in crystallins: four homologous motifs a connecting peptide and N- and C-terminal extensions. Beta-crystallins the most heterogeneous differ by the presence of the C-terminal extension (present in the basic group none in the acidic group). Beta-crystallins form aggregates of different sizes and are able to self-associate to form dimers or to form heterodimers with other beta-crystallins. This gene a beta acidic group member is part of a gene cluster with beta-B1 beta-B2 and beta-B3. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
