      Alternate Names
      • fibrillin 2
      • congenital contractural arachnodactyly
      • Fibrillin 5
      Background InformationFibrillin-2 is a part of the Fibrillin family of glycoproteins, which are essential factors in the formation and maintenance of elastic fibers known as microfibrils within the extracellular matrix. Various researchers have suggested that Fibrillin-2 has a role in the mediation of microfibril assembly during early elastogenesis. Defects in Fibrillin-2 are causal to a rare disorder involving autosomal dominant connective tissue known as congenital contractual arachnodactyly (CCA), also known as Beals syndrome or distal arthrogryposis type 9 (DA9), and is similar to Marfan syndrome.

      Antibody TypeMonoclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThe protein encoded by this gene is a component of connective tissue microfibrils and may be involved in elastic fiber assembly. Mutations in this gene cause congenital contractural arachnodactyly. [provided by RefSeq].

      • DA9
      • CCA
      • FBN2
      Purification MethodProtein G Purified
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: Fibrillins are structural components of 10-12 nm extracellular calcium-binding microfibrils, which occur either in association with elastin or in elastin-free bundles. Fibrillin-2-containing microfibrils regulate the early process of elastic fiber assembly.

      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted › extracellular space › extracellular matrix.

      INVOLVEMENT IN DISEASE: Defects in FBN2 are the cause of congenital contractural arachnodactyly (CCA) [MIM:121050]; also known as Beals syndrome or distal arthrogryposis type 9 (DA9). CCA is a rare, autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder characterized by contractures, arachnodactyly, scoliosis, and crumpled ears. Phenotypically similar to Marfan syndrome, CCA does not affect the aorta and the eyes.

      SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES: Belongs to the fibrillin family.
