LIM2 is an eye lens-specific protein found atthe junctions of lens fiber cells, where it may contribute to celljunctional organization. It acts as a receptor for calmodulin, andmay play an important role in both lens development andcataractogenesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated withcataract formation.
