  • FunctionProbably involved in connections of major cytoskeletal structures to the plasma membrane. In epithelial cells, required for the formation of microvilli and membrane ruffles on the apical pole. Along with PLEKHG6, required for normal macropinocytosis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, hippocampus, hypophysis, and optic nerve. Weakly expressed in brain stem and diencephalon. Stronger expression was detected in gray matter of frontal lobe compared to white matter (at protein level). Component of the microvilli of intestinal epithelial cells. Preferentially expressed in astrocytes of hippocampus, frontal cortex, thalamus, parahippocampal cortex, amygdala, insula, and corpus callosum. Not detected in neurons in most tissues studied.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 FERM domain.
  • Developmental stageVery strong staining is detected in the Purkinje cell layer and in part of the molecular layer of the infant brain compared to adult brain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by tyrosine-protein kinases.
  • Cellular localizationApical cell membrane. Cell projection. Cell projection > microvillus membrane. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Localization to the apical membrane of parietal cells depends on the interaction with MPP5. Localizes to cell extensions and peripheral processes of astrocytes (By similarity). Microvillar peripheral membrane protein.
