HEFL Docking protein that plays a role in tyrosine kinase-based signaling related to cell adhesion and cell spreading. Regulates PTK2/FAK1 activity, focal adhesion integrity, and cell spreading. Belongs to the CAS family. Expressed abundantly in lung and spleen. Also highly expressed in ovarian and leukemia cell lines. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
