myoferlin Calcium/phospholipid-binding protein that plays a role in the plasmalemma repair mechanism of endothelial cells that permits rapid resealing of membranes disrupted by mechanical stress. Involved in endocytic recycling. Implicated in VEGF signal transduction by regulating the levels of the receptor KDR. Belongs to the ferlin family. Expressed in myoblast and endothelial cells (at protein level). Highly expressed in cardiac and skeletal muscles. Also present in lung, and at very low levels in kidney, placenta and brain. 8 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
