TTR

This gene encodes transthyretin, one of the three prealbumins including alpha-1-antitrypsin, transthyretin andorosomucoid. Transthyretin is a carrier protein; it transports thyroid hormones in the plasma and cerebrospinalfluid, and also transports retinol (vitamin A) in the plasma. The protein consists of a tetramer of identicalsubunits. More than 80 different mutations in this gene have been reported; most mutations are related to amyloiddeposition, affecting predominantly peripheral nerve and/or the heart, and a small portion of the gene mutationsis non-amyloidogenic. The diseases caused by mutations include amyloidotic polyneuropathy, euthyroidhyperthyroxinaemia, amyloidotic vitreous opacities, cardiomyopathy, oculoleptomeningeal amyloidosis,meningocerebrovascular amyloidosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. (provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009)
