    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the EvC complex composed of EFCAB7, IQCE, EVC2 and EVC; built from two subcomplexes, EVC2:EVC and EFCAB7:IQCE. Interacts (via N-terminus) with EFCAB7 (via EF-hands 1 and 2); this interaction anchors the EVC-EVC2 complex in a signaling microdomain at the base of cilia and stimulates the Hedgehog (Hh) pathway. Interacts with EVC2 (via N-terminal end). Interacts with EVC.
