LAMB3 gene…..Function

Like LAMA3, LAMB3 gene also provides instructions for making one part (subunit) of a protein called ‘laminin 332’ (formerly known as laminin 5). As we discuss earlier ‘laminin 332’ is made up of three subunits alpha (α), beta (β) and gamma (g). The LAMB3 gene carries instructions for the beta (β) subunit the alpha (α) and gamma (g) subunits are produced from other genes.
