FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a calcium-independent phospholipid-binding protein whose expression increases in serum-starved cells. This protein is a substrate for protein kinase C (PKC) phosphorylation and recruits polymerase I and transcript release factor (PTRF) to caveolae. Removal of this protein causes caveolae loss and its over-expression results in caveolae deformation and membrane tubulation.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit abnormal caveolae formation in lung and adipose endothelia and adipocytes with gaps in the lung capillaries. [provided by MGI curators]
