This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2013]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CORO1C Gene
Plays a role in directed cell migration by regulating the activation and subcellular location of RAC1 (PubMed:25074804, PubMed:25925950). Increases the presence of activated RAC1 at the leading edge of migrating cells (PubMed:25074804, PubMed:25925950). Required for normal organization of the cytoskeleton, including the actin cytoskeleton, microtubules and the vimentin intermediate filaments (By similarity). Plays a role in endoplasmic reticulum-associated endosome fission: localizes to endosome membrane tubules and promotes recruitment of TMCC1, leading to recruitment of the endoplasmic reticulum to endosome tubules for fission (PubMed:30220460). Endosome membrane fission of early and late endosomes is essential to separate regions destined for lysosomal degradation from carriers to be recycled to the plasma membrane (PubMed:30220460). Required for normal cell proliferation, cell migration, and normal formation of lamellipodia (By similarity). Required for normal distribution of mitochondria within cells (By similarity).
