The TNXB gene is a protein-encoding gene for the protein tenascin-X. Tenascin-X has an import role im connective tissues (the tissues that support muscles, joints, organs, and skin).
The gene TNXB is also known as:
- Hexabrachion-like protein
- Tenascin XB
- Tenascin XB1
- Tenascin XB2
According to research, tenascin-X helps regulate the production and assembly of some types of collagens, and affects the elasticity of the skin.
Mutations in TNXB are associated with the connective tissue disease Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS).
