|Official Full Name||tubulin, alpha 8|
|Background||This gene encodes a member of the alpha tubulin protein family. Alpha tubulins are one of two core protein families;(alpha and beta tubulins) that heterodimerize and assemble to form microtubules. Mutations in this gene are associated;with polymicrogyria and optic nerve hypoplasia. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.|
|Synonyms||TUBA8; tubulin, alpha 8; TUBAL2; tubulin alpha-8 chain; Alpha tubulin 8; Alpha-tubulin 8; TBA8_HUMAN; Tubulin alpha 8 chain; Tubulin alpha chain like 2; Tubulin alpha chain-like 2|
