Gene: CAV1 (caveolin 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CAV1
Name: caveolin 1
Description: Exhibits several functions, including enzyme binding activity; inward rectifier potassium channel inhibitor activity; and ion channel binding activity. Involved in several processes, including endocytosis; regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and caveola. Colocalizes with the focal adhesion. Implicated in several diseases, including breast cancer (multiple); lipodystrophy (multiple); primary open angle glaucoma; primary pulmonary hypertension; and systemic scleroderma (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including acoustic neuroma; breast cancer (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); pulmonary hypertension; and systemic scleroderma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
