GeneCards Summary for MICALL1 Gene
MICALL1 (MICAL-Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and phosphatidic acid binding. An important paralog of this gene is SMTNL2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MICALL1 Gene
Probable lipid-binding protein with higher affinity for phosphatidic acid, a lipid enriched in recycling endosome membranes. On endosome membranes, may act as a downstream effector of Rab proteins recruiting cytosolic proteins to regulate membrane tubulation. May be involved in a late step of receptor-mediated endocytosis regulating for instance endocytosed-EGF receptor trafficking. Alternatively, may regulate slow endocytic recycling of endocytosed proteins back to the plasma membrane. May indirectly play a role in neurite outgrowth.
