Vectors for Human ACTA2

Gene Information

  • Offical Gene Symbol ACTA2
  • Species Human ( Homo sapiens )
  • Offical Full Name actin alpha 2, smooth muscle
  • Other Aliases ACTSA
  • Other Desigations actin, aortic smooth muscle; actin, alpha 2, smooth muscle, aorta; alpha-cardiac actin; cell growth-inhibiting gene 46 protein
  • Gene Type protein-coding
  • Summary
    This gene encodes one of six different actin proteins. Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in cell motility, structure, integrity, and intercellular signaling. The encoded protein is a smooth muscle actin that is involved in vascular contractility and blood pressure homeostasis. Mutations in this gene cause a variety of vascular diseases, such as thoracic aortic disease, coronary artery disease, stroke, and Moyamoya disease, as well as multisystemic smooth muscle dysfunction syndrome.
