  • Function

    Required for translocation of GLUT4 to the plasma membrane in response to insulin signaling (By similarity). Required to coordinate membrane tubulation with reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton during endocytosis. Binds to lipids such as phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate and phosphatidylserine and promotes membrane invagination and the formation of tubules. Also promotes CDC42-induced actin polymerization by recruiting WASL/N-WASP which in turn activates the Arp2/3 complex. Actin polymerization may promote the fission of membrane tubules to form endocytic vesicles. Required for the formation of podosomes, actin-rich adhesion structures specific to monocyte-derived cells. May be required for the lysosomal retention of FASLG/FASL.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in brain, colon, heart, kidney, liver, lung, megakaryocyte, ovary, pancreas, peripheral blood lymphocytes, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, small intestine, spleen, testis, thymus and trachea.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the FNBP1 family.
    Contains 1 FCH domain.
    Contains 1 REM (Hr1) repeat.
    Contains 1 SH3 domain.
  • Post-translational

    Tyrosine phosphorylated. Also phosphorylated by PKA.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > perinuclear region and Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Lysosome. Golgi apparatus. Cell membrane. Cell projection > phagocytic cup. Translocates to the plasma membrane in response to insulin stimulation, and this may require active RHOQ (By similarity). Localizes to cortical regions coincident with F-actin, to lysosomes and to sites of phagocytosis in macrophages. Also localizes to the Golgi, and this requires AKAP9.
