Entrez Gene Summary for CRYGN Gene

  • The beta and gamma crystallins are evolutionarily related families of proteins that are localized to the refractive structure of the eye lens. The protein encoded by this gene is unique in that it has both beta and gamma crystallin protein motifs. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
