Microtubule associated protein RP/EB family member 1
Microtubule-associated protein RP/EB family member 1
FunctionMay be involved in microtubule polymerization, and spindle function by stabilizing microtubules and anchoring them at centrosomes. May play a role in cell migration.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the MAPRE family. Contains 1 CH (calponin-homology) domain. Contains 1 EB1 C-terminal domain.
DomainComposed of two functionally independent domains. The N-terminal domain forms an hydrophobic cleft involved in microtubule binding and the C-terminal is involved in the formation of mutually exclusive complexes with APC and DCTN1.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Associated with the microtubule network at the growing distal tip of microtubules. Also enriched at the centrosome.
