Function: Lipid-binding protein that is able to promote the tubulation of the phosphatidic acid-containing membranes it preferentially binds. Plays a role in intracellular vesicle- mediated transport. Involved in the endocytosis of cell-surface receptors like the EGF receptor, contributing to its internalization in the absence of EGF stimulus. May also play a role in the formation of caveolae at the cell membrane. Recruits DNM2 to caveolae, and thereby plays a role in caveola-mediated endocytosis.
Cellular location: Cytoplasm (By similarity). Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton (By similarity). Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Early endosome. Recycling endosome membrane. Cell projection, ruffle membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cell projection (By similarity). Membrane, caveola. Note=Detected at the neck of flask-shaped caveolae. Localization to tubular recycling endosomes probably requires interaction with MICALL1 and EHD1.
Tissue specificity: Widely expressed.
