Crystallin, mu

Crystallins are separated into two classes: taxon-specific and ubiquitous. The former class is also called phylogenetically-restricted crystallins. The latter class constitutes the major proteins of vertebrate eye lens and maintains the transparency and refractive index of the lens. This gene encodes a taxon-specific crystallin protein that binds NADPH and has sequence similarity to bacterial ornithine cyclodeaminases. The encoded protein does not perform a structural role in lens tissue, and instead it binds thyroid hormone for possible regulatory or developmental roles. Mutations in this gene have been associated with autosomal dominant non-syndromic deafness. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.

Anderson et al., Irvine, United States. In Biomaterials, Oct 2015
In order to detect regeneration of descending neuronal tracts into the bridge, and beyond into intact caudal parenchyma, we developed a mouse cervical implantation model and employed Crym:GFP transgenic mice.
Right ventricular protein expression profile in end-stage heart failure.
Di Salvo et al., Nashville, United States. In Pulm Circ, Sep 2015
In all 12 hearts, the right ventricles (RVs) demonstrated differential expression of 11 proteins relative to the left ventricles (LVs), including lesser expression of CRYM, TPM1, CLU, TXNL1, and COQ9 and greater expression of TNNI3, SAAI, ERP29, ACTN2, HSPB2, and NDUFS3.
