Title: OCA2 (OCA2 melanosomal transmembrane protein)
Author: Ray, Kunal; Sengupta, Mainak; Ghosh, Sampurna
Abstract: OCA2 gene (OCA2), having a chromosomal location of 15q12-q13, encodes an integral membrane transporter protein playing a role in regulating the pH of melanosomes. OCA2 is hypothesized to be involved in the transport of tyrosine, the precursor to melanin synthesis, within the melanocyte. Defects in this gene are the cause of oculocutaneous albinism type II; OCA II.
