External Ids for CPNE6 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the copine family. Members of this family are calcium-dependent, phospholipid-binding proteins with C2 domains, two calcium- and phospholipid-binding domains. Through their domain structure and lipid binding capabilities, these proteins may play a role in membrane trafficking. This protein is thought to be brain-specific and has a domain structure of two N-terminal C2 domains and one von Willebrand factor A domain. It may have a role in synaptic plasticity.
