WFS1 Participates in the regulation of cellular Ca(2+) homeostasis, at least partly, by modulating the filling state of the endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) store. Highly expressed in heart followed by brain, placenta, lung and pancreas. Weakly expressed in liver, kidney and skeletal muscle. Also expressed in islet and beta-cell insulinoma cell line. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
