Summaries for ZFYVE21 Gene

GeneCards Summary for ZFYVE21 Gene

ZFYVE21 (Zinc Finger, FYVE Domain Containing 21) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is ZFYVE16.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZFYVE21 Gene

  • Plays a role in cell adhesion, and thereby in cell motility which requires repeated formation and disassembly of focal adhesions. Regulates microtubule-induced PTK2/FAK1 dephosphorylation, an event important for focal adhesion disassembly, as well as integrin beta-1/ITGB1 cell surface expression.

  • Q9BQ24
  • The FYVE-type zinc finger mediates interaction with PTK2/FAK1, and also interaction with PI(3)P and association with endosomes
  • The C-terminal region exhibits a structure similar to canonical PH domains, but lacks a positively charged interface to bind phosphatidylinositol phosphate
  • Contains 1 FYVE-type zinc finger.
