High impact information on CRYBB2

  • Phosphorylation of beta-crystallin B2 (beta Bp) in the bovine lens [1].
  • The imparted mineral affinity as a result of BP conjugation, as assessed by hydroxyapatite (HA) binding in vitro, was lost upon cleavage of the disulfide-linked BP [2].
  • In conclusion, disulfide-linked BP conjugates were shown to be readily cleavable by the amino acid cysteine and this resulted in the loss of imparted mineral affinity of the proteins [2].
