  • Function
    May play a key role in diverse functions ascribed to CD81 and CD9 such as oocytes fertilization or hepatitis C virus function. May regulate proliferation and differentiation of keratinocytes. May be a negative regulator of cell motility: suppresses T-cell mobility coordinately with CD81, associates with CD82 to suppress prostate cancer cell migration, regulates epidermoid cell reaggregation and motility on laminin-5 with CD9 and CD81 as key linkers. May also play a role on integrin-dependent morphology and motility functions. May participate in the regulation of neurite outgrowth and maintenance of the neural network in the adult brain.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain, kidney, testis, liver and placenta with moderate expression in all other tissues. Detected on a majority of B-cells, T-cells, and natural killer cells but not on monocytes, polynuclear cells and platelets.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 4 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
  • Domain
    The Ig-like C2-type domains 3 and 4 are required for interaction with CD81.
    The short cytoplasmic domain is very basic, interacts with membrane PIPs, and mediates plasma membrane localization.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.
