Literature associating FBN2 and idiopathic scoliosis
Fibrillin 2; Fibrillin-2: 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. Regulates osteoblast maturation by controlling TGF-beta bioavailability and calibrating TGF-beta and BMP levels, respectively; Belongs to the fibrillin family.
