Previous GeneCards Identifiers for LCP1 Gene
Plastins are a family of actin-binding proteins that are conserved throughout eukaryote evolution and expressed in most tissues of higher eukaryotes. In humans, two ubiquitous plastin isoforms (L and T) have been identified. Plastin 1 (otherwise known as Fimbrin) is a third distinct plastin isoform which is specifically expressed at high levels in the small intestine. The L isoform is expressed only in hemopoietic cell lineages, while the T isoform has been found in all other normal cells of solid tissues that have replicative potential (fibroblasts, endothelial cells, epithelial cells, melanocytes, etc.). However, L-plastin has been found in many types of malignant human cells of non-hemopoietic origin suggesting that its expression is induced accompanying tumorigenesis in solid tissues.

GeneCards Summary for LCP1 Gene
LCP1 (Lymphocyte Cytosolic Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are NF-kappaB Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and actin binding. An important paralog of this gene is PLS3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LCP1 Gene
Actin-binding protein. Plays a role in the activation of T-cells in response to costimulation through TCR/CD3 and CD2 or CD28. Modulates the cell surface expression of IL2RA/CD25 and CD69.
