External Ids for SGIP1 Gene
SGIP1 functions as an endocytic protein that affects signaling by receptors in neuronal systems involved in energy homeostasis via its interaction with endophilins (see SH3GL3; MIM 603362) (Trevaskis et al., 2005 [PubMed 15919751] and Uezu et al., 2007 [PubMed 17626015]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SGIP1 Gene
SGIP1 (SH3-Domain GRB2-Like (Endophilin) Interacting Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipid binding and SH3 domain binding. An important paralog of this gene is FCHO1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SGIP1 Gene
May function in clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Has both a membrane binding/tubulating activity and the ability to recruit proteins essential to the formation of functional clathrin-coated pits. Has a preference for membranes enriched in phosphatidylserine and phosphoinositides and is required for the endocytosis of the transferrin receptor. May also bind tubulin. May play a role in the regulation of energy homeostasis (By similarity).
