  • Function
    Crystallins are the dominant structural components of the vertebrate eye lens.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CRYBA1 are the cause of cataract congenital zonular with sutural opacities (CCZS) [MIM:600881]. A form of zonular cataract. Zonular or lamellar cataracts are concentric opacities, broad or narrow, usually consisting of powdery white dots affecting one lamella or zonule of an otherwise clear lens.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the beta/gamma-crystallin family.
    Contains 4 beta/gamma crystallin 'Greek key' domains.
  • Domain
    Has a two-domain beta-structure, folded into four very similar Greek key motifs.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Specific cleavages in the N-terminal arm occur during lens maturation and give rise to several truncated forms. Cleavages do not seem to have adverse effects on solubility.
    S-methylation and glutathionylation occur in normal young lenses and do not seem to be detrimental.
    Isoform A1 initiator methionine is removed. The new N-terminal amino acid is then N-acetylated.
