LIM2 encodes an eye lens-specific protein found at the junctions of lens fiber cells, where it may contribute to cell junctional organization. Additionally we are shipping LIM2 Antibodies (26) and and many more products for this protein.
A novel missense mutation in the Lim2 (show LHX2 ELISA Kits) gene affects lens development in a semidominant manner. Since homozygous mutants develop congenital lens opacities, this mouse line can be used as a model for inherited cataract formation in humans.
Data show that the calcium- and integrin-binding protein CIB (show CIB1 ELISA Kits) as an LMO3 (show LMO3 ELISA Kits)-binding protein, which binds via the second LIM (show PDLIM5 ELISA Kits) domain (LIM2 (show LHX2 ELISA Kits)) of LMO3 (show LMO3 ELISA Kits).
The genetic mutation in GJA3 (show GJA3 ELISA Kits), GJA8 (show GJA8 ELISA Kits), and LIM2 may slightly contribute to the development of age-related cataracts.
Since the LIM2 gene promoter does not contain a classic TATA box, the Hsu element may serve as the site for binding the RNA polymerase complex.
A missense mutation in the LIM2 gene is associated with autosomal recessive presenile cataract in an inbred Iraqi Jewish family
This study shows the involvement of LIM2 in human congenital cataract.
This gene encodes an eye lens-specific protein found at the junctions of lens fiber cells, where it may contribute to cell junctional organization. It acts as a receptor for calmodulin, and may play an important role in both lens development and cataractogenesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with cataract formation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
