EFEMP1 (human)

EFEMP1 Binds EGFR, the EGF receptor, inducing EGFR autophosphorylation and the activation of downstream signaling pathways. May play a role in cell adhesion and migration. May function as a negative regulator of chondrocyte differentiation. In the olfactory epithelium, it may regulate glial cell migration, differentiation and the ability of glial cells to support neuronal neurite outgrowth. Defects in EFEMP1 are a cause of Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy (DHRD); also known as malattia leventinese (MLVT) (ML). DHRD is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by yellow-white deposits known as drusen that accumulate beneath the retinal pigment epithelium. Belongs to the fibulin family. 4 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
