a cytoskeletal protein of the ERM family which includes ezrin and moiesin. ERM proteins appear to function as cross-linkers between plasma membranes and actin-based cytoskeletons. May play a crucial role in the binding of the barbed end of actin filaments to the plasma membrane. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Cytoskeletal; Motility/polarity/chemotaxis
Molecular Function: actin binding; ATPase binding; protein binding; protein homodimerization activity; protein kinase A binding
Biological Process: establishment of protein localization; negative regulation of cell size; negative regulation of homotypic cell-cell adhesion; positive regulation of cell migration; regulation of actin filament bundle formation; regulation of cell shape; regulation of cell size; regulation of GTPase activity; regulation of Rap protein signal transduction
