FUNCTION: This gene encodes elastin, the extracellular matrix protein that forms a major structural component of several tissues including lungs and arterial walls. Cleavage of the signal peptide from the encoded precursor generates soluble tropoelastin which undergoes lysine-derived crosslinking to form elastin polymers. Mice lacking the encoded protein exhibit defective lung development, and die of an obstructive arterial disease resulting from subendothelial cell proliferation and reorganization of smooth muscle.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for null allele die in the early postnatal period of an obstructive arterial disease. They exhibit a decrease in arterial diameter due to subendothelial accumulation of arterial smooth muscle, and display defective terminal airway development resulting in emphysematous morphology.
