Fibronectin 1

The FN1 gene encodes fibronectin, a glycoprotein present in a soluble dimeric form in plasma, and in a dimeric or multimeric form at the cell surface and in extracellular matrix. Mutation of the gene cause autosomal dominant familial glomerular nephritis with fibronectin deposits type 2.
