endofin May be involved in regulating membrane trafficking in the endosomal pathway. Overexpression induces endosome aggregation. Required to target TOM1 to endosomes. Widely expressed. Highly expressed in kidney, placenta and lung. Expressed at intermediate level in heart, brain, skeletal muscle, spleen and liver. Weakly expressed in colon, thymus and peripheral blood lymphocytes. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
