elastin microfibril interfacer 1


ENTREZID: 11117 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 2p23.3

OMIM: 611718 | 131530


Summary Entrez
This gene encodes an extracellular matrix glycoprotein that is characterized by an N-terminal microfibril interface domain, a coiled-coiled alpha-helical domain, a collagenous domain and a C-terminal globular C1q domain. The encoded protein associates with elastic fibers at the interface between elastin and microfibrils and may play a role in the development of elastic tissues including large blood vessels, dermis, heart and lung.
