About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for COL8A2 Gene:
This gene encodes the alpha 2 chain of type VIII collagen. The protein is a major component of the basement
membrane of the corneal endothelium and forms homo- or heterotrimers with alpha 1 (VIII) type collagens. Defects
in this gene are associated with Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy
type 2. (provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009)

GeneCards Summary for COL8A2 Gene: 
COL8A2 (collagen, type VIII, alpha 2) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with COL8A2 include endotheliitis, and fuchs' endothelial dystrophy, and among its related super-pathways are Collagen biosynthesis and modifying enzymes and FAK1 Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include extracellular matrix structural constituent and protein binding, bridging. An important paralog of this gene is C1QTNF6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: CO8A2_HUMAN, P25067
Function: Macromolecular component of the subendothelium. Major component of the Descemet's membrane (basement
membrane) of corneal endothelial cells. Also component of the endothelia of blood vessels. Necessary for
migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and thus, has a potential role in the maintenance of
vessel wall integrity and structure, in particular in atherogenesis (By similarity)

  • Corneal dystrophy, Fuchs endothelial, 1 (FECD1) [MIM:136800]: A corneal disease caused by loss of
    endothelium of the central cornea. It is characterized by focal wart-like guttata that arise from Descemet
    membrane and develop in the central cornea, epithelial blisters, reduced vision and pain. Descemet membrane is
    thickened by abnormal collagenous deposition. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene
    represented in this entry
  • Corneal dystrophy, posterior polymorphous, 2 (PPCD2) [MIM:609140]: A rare mild subtype of posterior
    corneal dystrophy characterized by alterations of Descemet membrane presenting as vesicles, opacities or
    band-like lesions on slit-lamp examination and specular microscopy. Affected patient typically are asymptomatic.
    Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry
