Summaries for CEACAM16 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CEACAM16 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted glycoprotein that in mouse interacts with tectorial membrane proteins in the inner ear. The encoded adhesion protein is found in cochlear outer hair cells and appears to be important for proper hearing over an extended frequency range. Defects in this gene likely are a cause of non-syndromic autosomal dominant hearing loss. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CEACAM16 Gene
