  • a proline-rich domain near its N terminus, with two clusters of proline-rich sequences; first located at positions 86112, mediating the interaction with the vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP) EVH1 domain, the second encompassing AAs 140170 (Zhao 2009)
  • three LIM domain
  • C-terminal LIM domains of migfilin that dictate its Focal adhesions (FAs) localization

  • localized at cell junctions and also in the nucleus
  • associated with actin bundles bridging neighboring cells
  • basic FUNCTION
  • required for the cell shape modulation and regulating actin remodeling and cell morphology
  • may link cell adhesion structures to the actin cytoskeleton
  • adaptor protein, functioning as an important activator of Src, linking cell-ECM adhesion to Src activation and survival signaling (Zhao 2009)
  • may affect cardiomyocyte differentiation after binding with the CSX/NKX2-5 transcription factor
  • important role in cell-ECM adhesion-mediated regulation of Src activation and protection against anoikis (Zhao 2009)
  • acts as a molecular switch to disconnect filamin from integrin for regulating integrin activation and dynamics of extracellular matrix-actin linkage (Ithychanda 2009)
  • regulates bone remodeling through modulating both osteoblast behavior and osteoclast differentiation
  • kindlin- and filamin-binding focal adhesion protein, essential for proper control of bone remodeling
  • FBLIM1 may work in concert with its binding partners FERMT2 and filamin in bone
  • is critical for cell shape and motile regulation
  • role of FBLIM1 in Osteoarthritis (OA), suggesting the importance of cell-ECM adhesion proteins in OA pathogenesis
  • novel cell-matrix adhesion protein known to interact with VASP and be localized both at cell-matrix and cell-cell adhesions
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, differentiation
    cell migration & motility
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
  • FBLIM1-mediated signaling pathway is dysfunctional in multiple types of carcinoma cells, which likely contributes to aberrant Src activation and anoikis resistance in these cancerous cells (Zhao 2009)
  • SRC, FERMT2 and FBLIM1 together constitute a positive feedback loop that controls SRC activity and regulates integrin-mediated cellular functions
  • a component
    INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • interacting with filamin B and FERMT2
  • interacting with VASP and regulating VASP localization to cell matrix adhesions and migration (Zhang 2006)
  • interacts with not only Src SH3 domain but also Src SH2 domain, albeit the latter interaction is weaker than the former (Zhao 2009)
  • FLNA can act broadly as an inhibitor and FBLIM1 is a promoter of integrin activation
  • FERMT2 and filamin, which directly bind FBLIM1, have been implicated in regulation of bone remodeling
  • cell & other
