Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including protein heterodimerization activity; protein kinase binding activity; and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of transforming growth factor beta receptor signaling pathway; regulation of endothelial cell proliferation; and skeletal muscle fiber development. Localizes to the acrosomal membrane and caveolar macromolecular signaling complex. Colocalizes with the focal adhesion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in low tension glaucoma and primary open angle glaucoma. Is expressed in bronchiole epithelium; embryo; and lung. Orthologous to human CAV2 (caveolin 2).
