Vectors for Human COL8A2

Gene Information

  • Offical Gene Symbol COL8A2
  • Species Human (Homo sapiens)
  • Offical Full Name collagen type VIII alpha 2 chain
  • Other Aliases FECD; FECD1; PPCD; PPCD2
  • Other Desigations collagen alpha-2(VIII) chain; collagen VIII, alpha-2 polypeptide; collagen, type VIII, alpha 2; endothelial collagen
  • Gene Type protein-coding
  • Summary
    This gene encodes the alpha 2 chain of type VIII collagen. This protein is a major component of the basement membrane of the corneal endothelium and forms homo- or heterotrimers with alpha 1 (VIII) type collagens. Defects in this gene are associated with Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy type 2. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
