GeneCards Summary for ESYT2 Gene
ESYT2 (Extended Synaptotagmin-Like Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is MCTP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ESYT2 Gene
Tethers the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell membrane and promotes the formation of appositions between the endoplasmic reticulum and the cell membrane. Binds glycerophospholipids in a barrel-like domain and may play a role in cellular lipid transport. Plays a role in FGF signaling via its role in the rapid internalization of FGFR1 that has been activated by FGF1 binding; this occurs most likely via the AP-2 complex.
