FAMILY leucine-rich repeats and immunoglobulin-like domains (LRIG) protein family
CATEGORY tumor suppressor
SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    plasma membrane
basic FUNCTION
  • LRIG1 and LRIG3 overlap prominently in the developing vestibular apparatus and simultaneous removal of both genes disrupts inner ear morphogenesis
  • functions as a tumor suppressor by attenuating EGFR signaling pathway
  • may influence heart function and plasma lipid levels in mice and humans
  • have a function similar to that of LRIG1: tumor suppressor in human cancers
