View in BioMuta


CSRP2 encodes a LIM domain protein. LIM domain proteins may be involved in regulatory processes important for development and cellular differentiation. CSRP2 has two copies of the cysteine-rich amino acid sequence motif (LIM) with putative zinc-binding activity, and may be involved in regulating ordered cell growth. CSRP2 is thought to play a role in the development of the embryonic vascular system.
