Entrez Gene Summary for CFL2 Gene

  • This gene encodes an intracellular protein that is involved in the regulation of actin-filament dynamics. This protein is a major component of intranuclear and cytoplasmic actin rods. It can bind G- and F-actin in a 1:1 ratio of cofilin to actin, and it reversibly controls actin polymerization and depolymerization in a pH-dependent manner. Mutations in this gene cause nemaline myopathy type 7, a form of congenital myopathy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009]

GeneCards Summary for CFL2 Gene

CFL2 (Cofilin 2 (Muscle)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFL2 include nemaline myopathy 7, autosomal recessive and cfl2-related nemaline myopathy. Among its related pathways are Regulation of actin cytoskeleton and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding. An important paralog of this gene is DSTN.

COF2_HUMAN
  • Nemaline myopathy 7 (NEM7) [MIM:610687]: A form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-like or rod-shaped structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination. Nemaline myopathy type 7 presents at birth with hypotonia and generalized weakness. Major motor milestones are delayed, but independent ambulation is achieved. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17160903}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
