Summaries for WDFY1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDFY1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate binding protein, which contains a FYVE zinc finger domain and multiple WD-40 repeat domains. When exogenously expressed, it localizes to early endosomes. Mutagenesis analysis demonstrates that this endosomal localization is mediated by the FYVE domain. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]

  • Q8IWB7
  • The FYVE-type zinc finger domain mediates interactions with phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate in membranes of early endosomes and penetrates bilayers. The FYVE domain insertion into PtdIns(3)P-enriched membranes is substantially increased in acidic conditions.
  • Contains 1 FYVE-type zinc finger.
  • Contains 7 WD repeats.
