Summaries for MATN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MATN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of von Willebrand factor A domain containing protein family. This family of proteins are thought to be involved in the formation of filamentous networks in the extracellular matrices of various tissues. Mutations of this gene have been associated with variety of inherited chondrodysplasias. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MATN1 Gene
