  • FunctionMay act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity (By similarity). Involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-cell receptor (TCR)-mediated T-cell activation. Its binding to DPP4 induces T-cell proliferation and NF-kappa-B activation in a T-cell receptor/CD3-dependent manner. Recruits CTNNB1 to caveolar membranes and may regulate CTNNB1-mediated signaling through the Wnt pathway.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in muscle and lung, less so in liver, brain and kidney.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in CAV1 are the cause of congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 3 (CGL3) [MIM:612526]; also called Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy type 3 (BSCL3). Congenital generalized lipodystrophies are autosomal recessive disorders characterized by a near absence of adipose tissue, extreme insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatic steatosis and early onset of diabetes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the caveolin family.
  • Post-translational
    The initiator methionine for isoform Beta is removed during or just after translation. The new N-terminal amino acid is then N-acetylated.
  • Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus membrane. Cell membrane. Membrane > caveola. Membrane raft. Colocalized with DPP4 in membrane rafts. Potential hairpin-like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae.

    Lane 1 : A431 cells, unstimulated
    Lane 2 : A431 cells, stimulated with pervanadate (1 mM for 30 min)

    Observed band size : 21 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • IF staining of Caveolin-1 in PFA-fixed and NP40-permeabilized Rabbit spleen fibroblasts.
    The cells were labeled with ab86711 at 1/100 dilution and detected using a secondary antibody conjugated to Cy3.
