Function: Involved in cell growth regulation. May be involved in the regulation of mitogenic signals and control of cell proliferation. Involved in the internalization of ligand-inducible receptors of the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) type, in particular EGFR. Plays a role in the assembly of clathrin-coated pits (CCPs). Seems to be involved in CCPs maturation including invagination or budding. Involved in endocytosis of integrin beta- 1 (ITGB1) and transferrin receptor (TFR); internalization of ITGB1 as DAB2-dependent cargo but not TFR seems to require association with DAB2.
Cellular location: Cytoplasm. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Membrane, clathrin-coated pit. Note=Recruited to the plasma membrane upon EGFR activation and localizes to coated pits. Isoform 2: Early endosome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Colocalizes with HGS on bilayered clathrin coats on endosomes.
Tissue specificity: Ubiquitously expressed.
