Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PPP1R16B Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is membrane-associated and contains five ankyrin repeats, a protein phosphatase-1-interacting domain, and a carboxy-terminal CAAX box domain. Synthesis of the encoded protein is inhibited by transforming growth factor beta-1. The protein may bind to the membrane through its CAAX box domain and may act as a signaling molecule through interaction with protein phosphatase-1. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms that may undergo similar processing to generate mature protein. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PPP1R16B Gene
Regulator of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) that acts as a positive regulator of pulmonary endothelial cell (EC) barrier function (PubMed:18586956). Involved in the regulation of the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway, angiogenesis and endothelial cell proliferation (PubMed:25007873). Regulates angiogenesis and endothelial cell proliferation through the control of ECE1 dephosphorylation, trafficking and activity (By similarity). Protects the endothelial barrier from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced vascular leakage (By similarity). Involved in the regulation of endothelial cell filopodia extension (By similarity). May be a downstream target for TGF-beta1 signaling cascade in endothelial cells (PubMed:16263087, PubMed:18586956). Involved in PKA-mediated moesin dephosphorylation which is important in EC barrier protection against thrombin stimulation (PubMed:18586956). Promotes the interaction of PPP1CA with RPSA/LAMR1 and in turn facilitates the dephosphorylation of RPSA/LAMR1 (PubMed:16263087). Involved in the dephosphorylation of EEF1A1 (PubMed:26497934).
