    motifs/domains
  • a putatively cytosolic, N-terminal segment which includes the connexin-interacting region and is highly disordered
  • short C-terminal tail well structured and likely to form a globular domain (Del Castillo 2010)

    text located at the trans-Golgi network (TGN), in tubulovesicular transport organelles, and at the plasma membrane (Del Castillo 2010)
    basic FUNCTION
  • role in the intracellular sorting of connexins, acts as a TGN receptor involved in connexin targeting to the plasma membrane and recycling from the cell surface (Del Castillo 2010)
  • first cargo receptor implicated in the traffic of integral membrane proteins (Del Castillo 2010)
