FunctionPlays a central role in tight junction maintenance via the complex formed with ARHGAP17, which acts by regulating the uptake of polarity proteins at tight junctions. Appears to regulate endothelial cell migration and tube formation. May also play a role in the assembly of endothelial cell-cell junctions.
Tissue specificityExpressed in placenta and skeletal muscle. Found in the endothelial cells of capillaries as well as larger vessels of the placenta.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the angiomotin family.
DomainThe coiled coil domain interacts directly with the BAR domain of ARHGAP17. The angiostatin binding domain (871-1005) allows the binding to angiostatin.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Cellular localizationCell junction > tight junction. Localized on the cell surface. May act as a transmembrane protein.
Detection of Angiomotin by Western Blot of Immunprecipitate.
