Mutations in the transforming growth factor β induced protein (TGFBIp) are linked to the development of corneal dystrophies, in which abnormal protein deposition in the cornea leads to a loss of corneal transparency and ultimately blindness. Different mutations give rise to phenotypically distinct corneal dystrophies. Most mutations are located in the 4th fasciclin-1 domain (FAS1-4). The amino acid substitution A546T in the FAS1-4 domain is linked to the development of lattice corneal dystrophy with amyloid deposits in.
