Previous GeneCards Identifiers for WWC2 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the WW-and-C2-domain-containing family of proteins. Members of this family have two N-terminal WW domains that mediate binding to target proteins harboring L/PPxY motifs, an internal C2 domain for membrane association, and C-terminal alpha protein kinase C binding sites and class III PDZ domain-interaction motifs. Proteins of this family are able to form homo- and heterodimers and to modulate hippo pathway signaling. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2016]
