Moesin a member of the ERM family which includes radixin and moesin. ERM proteins appear to function as cross-linkers between plasma membranes and actin-based cytoskeletons. Plays a key role in cell surface structure adhesion, migration, and organization. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
