Battenin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CLN3 gene located on chromosome 16.[1][2]

Function[edit]

Battenin is involved in lysosomal function. Many alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.[2]

Clinical significance[edit]

Mutations in this gene, as well as other neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinosis (CLN) genes, cause neurodegenerative diseases commonly known as Batten disease, also known as Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (JNCL) or Juvenile Batten disease.
