ⓘ CRYZ

Quinone oxidoreductase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the CRYZ gene.

Crystallins are divided into two classes: taxon-specific, or enzyme, and ubiquitous. The last class represents the main protein of eye lens of vertebrates and maintains the transparency and refractive index of the lens. First class is also called a phylogenetically-restricted crystallins. This gene encodes a taxon-specific crystallin protein, which is NADPH-dependent quinone reductase activity, different from other known quinone reductase. It lacks alcohol dehydrogenase activity despite the similarity, he is a member of the zinc-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family. Unlike other mammals, in humans, the expression of the lens low. One pseudogene known to exist.
