CRYGB a major structural protein of the eye lens. A member of the beta/gamma-crystallin family. Gamma-crystallins are a homogeneous group of highly symmetrical, monomeric proteins typically lacking connecting peptides and terminal extensions. Gamma-crystallins are involved in cataract formation. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
