FunctionMay be involved in several stages of intracellular trafficking. Plays a role in macropinocytosis. Plays a role in the internalization of EGFR after EGF stimulation.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the sorting nexin family. Contains 1 BAR domain. Contains 1 PX (phox homology) domain.
DomainThe PX domain mediates interaction with membranes enriched in phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate and/or phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate.
Cellular localizationEarly endosome membrane. Cell membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Cytoplasm. Cell projection > phagocytic cup. Cell projection > ruffle. Recruited to the plasma membrane after EGF stimulation, which leads to increased levels of phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate (PdtIns(3,4)P2). Detected on macropinosomes. Targeted to membrane ruffles in response to EGFR stimulation.
