GeneDescription cryaa are small heat shock proteins that contribute transparency, refractive power of the eye lens and its normal development and also keeps the non–native proteins apart which lead to cataract.
GeneFunction Runkle et al.(2002) suggested that cryaa was highly expressed in eye lens and very low in liver and spleen which led to the conclusion that cryaa had limited role outside the lens.Horwitz (2003) found that crystallin acts as a molecular chaperone that protects proteins from misfolding.Dahlman et al. (2005) found that cryaa contribute to transparency & refractive index of the lens necessary for the vision & cryaa are lens specific chaperone like molecule. The chaperone-like activities of zebrafish α-crystallins were assayed by measuring their ability to prevent the aggregation of the target proteins like α-lactalbumin, insulin, and lysozyme upon chemical denaturation.They were not able to identify the specific amino acid changes that alter chaperone like activity of cryaa.Posner at al. (2008) used 2DE (2-Dimensional Gel Electrophoresis ) and concluded that cryaa contributes 7.8% to the zebrafish
GeneCloning Runkle et al. (2002) used 3’ & 5’ RACE to clone the zebrafish cryaa gene.
GeneStructure This gene encodes a single transcript (ENSDART00000075539) which has 3 exons and is1,417 bps in length.The protein product (ENSDARP00000070021) consists of 173 residues.

DisordersAndMutations Litt et al. (1998) found that defects in cryaa gene are associated with autosomal dominant congenital cataracts.Goishi et al., (2006)found that the zebrafish cloche mutant, both the cloche(m39) and cloche(S5) alleles, which have defects in hematopoiesis and blood vessel development, also have lens cataracts.
