Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FLOT1 Gene
This gene encodes an protein that localizes to the caveolae, which are small domains on the inner cell membranes. This protein plays a role in vesicle trafficking and cell morphology. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]
