Entrez Gene Summary for CAVIN2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a calcium-independent phospholipid-binding protein whose expression increases in serum-starved cells. This protein is a substrate for protein kinase C (PKC) phosphorylation and recruits polymerase I and transcript release factor (PTRF) to caveolae. Removal of this protein causes caveolae loss and its over-expression results in caveolae deformation and membrane tubulation.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

GeneCards Summary for CAVIN2 Gene

CAVIN2 (Caveolae Associated Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is CAVIN1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CAVIN2 Gene

  • May play a role in targeting PRKCA to caveolae.

    47173 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Binds to PRKCA in the presence of phosphatidylserine (By similarity). Interacts with MURC; this augments the transactivation of NPPA by MURC.
    • Binds phosphatidylserine (PS) in a calcium-independent manner. PS-binding is inhibited by phosphotidic acid and phosphatidylinositol. Does not bind phosphatidylcholine.
