KALRN kalirin RhoGEF kinase

Gene ID: 8997, updated on 17-Oct-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: DUO; CHD5; DUET; TRAD; CHDS5; HAPIP; ARHGEF24


Huntington's disease (HD), a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of striatal neurons, is caused by an expansion of a polyglutamine tract in the HD protein huntingtin. This gene encodes a protein that interacts with the huntingtin-associated protein 1, which is a huntingtin binding protein that may function in vesicle trafficking. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
