This is the community wiki page for the gene crygdl2.2 please feel free to add any information that is relevant to this gene that is not already captured elsewhere in Xenbase
Be aware that the crystallin gene family is vast and complex, and it is not trivial to unravel true orthologs through synteny analysis.
Xenopus crygd appear to be not a true ortholog of Human CRYGD, but a duplicated -like gene, so has been renamed crygdl2.2.
Do not change name until a thorough review has been completed.
