Function: Calcium-binding protein. May have a role in calcium homeostasis. Nesfatin-1: Anorexigenic peptide, seems to play an important role in hypothalamic pathways regulating food intake and energy homeostasis, acting in a leptin-independent manner. May also exert hypertensive roles and modulate blood pressure through directly acting on peripheral arterial resistance (By similarity).
Cellular location: Golgi apparatus. Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cytoplasm. Secreted. Endoplasmic reticulum (By similarity). Nucleus envelope (By similarity). Note=Golgi retention is mediated by its N-terminal region. Nesfatin-1: Secreted.
Tissue specificity: Predominantly expressed in spleen, testis and normal stomach.

Genetic variants

Deletion of Gln-402 is frequent.
