Function: Regulates integrin internalization and recycling, but does not influence the traffic of endosomally translocated receptors in general. As a result, may regulate cell adhesion and migration (By similarity). During the mitosis of adherent cells, controls the endosomal trafficking of integrins which is required for the successful completion of cytokinesis.
Cellular location: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Lipid-anchor (By similarity). Golgi apparatus membrane. Early endosome membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Cleavage furrow. Note=In nonpolarized epithelial Caco-2 cells, found in the endoplasmic reticulum; in polarized cells, observed in vesicles in the apical cytoplasm. During mitosis, in mid-telophase, localized in the ingressing cleavage furrow. In late telophase, detected at the opposite poles of the daughter cells, in vesicles at the base of lamellipodia formed by the separating daughter cells.
Tissue specificity: Widely expressed. In jejunal tissue, predominantly expressed in the apical region of the epithelial cell layer of the villi, weak expression, if any, in the crypt epithelium. Capillary endothelium and some cell types in the lamina propria also show expression.
