Extracellular matrix protein FRAS1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FRAS1 (Fraser syndrome 1) gene.[1][2] This gene encodes an extracellular matrix protein that appears to function in the regulation of epidermal-basement membrane adhesion and organogenesis during development.

Clinical significance[edit]

Mutations in this gene is observed to cause fraser syndrome.[3]
