Text placenta
  • a nucleotide-binding consensus site at the N terminus, and N-terminal region may regulate the availability of the unstructured loop for interactions with neighboring EHD2 dimers, thus promoting oligomerization
  • N-terminal P-loop and an ATPase domain
  • an EPS15 (EHD) protein binding domain, which facilitates canonical EHD protein interactions, was not required to direct overexpressed EHD2 to the cell surface
  • a bipartite nuclear localization signal
  • an unstructured loop consisting of two proline-phenylalanine (PF) motifs: KPFRKLNPF
  • a C-terminal EH domain; the EH domain is an EF hand-like structure that interacts with proteins containing an asparagine-proline-phenylalanine (NPF) motif
  • mono polymer homomer , dimer , oligo
    interspecies homolog to rattus Ehd2 (97.1 pc)
    homolog to murine Ehd2 (96.7 pc)
    intraspecies paralog to EHD1, EHD3, EHD4
  • Eps15 homology domain-containing protein family
  • CATEGORY adaptor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
  • colocalized with GLUT4 in intracellular tubulovesicular structures that are associated with cortical actin filaments
  • cytoplasmic side
  • endosome membrane
  • shuttles to the nucleus and represses transcription
  • localizes to the inner leaflet of the plasma membrane
  • basic FUNCTION
  • participating in the clathrin-mediated endocytic machinery
  • also potentially involved in signal transduction pathways, downstream of receptor tyrosine kinases
  • playing a role in membrane reorganization in response to nucleotide hydrolysis
  • deforming liposomes into tubules
  • playing a role in membrane trafficking between the plasma membrane and endosomes
  • being important for the internalization of GLUT4
  • required for normal fusion of myoblasts to skeletal muscle myotubes
  • regulate the exit of cargo from the recycling endosome
  • colocalize with vesicular and tubular structures, implying roles in transport processes and cytoskeletal dynamics and interact with specific phospholipids
  • required for normal translocation of FER1L5 to the plasma membrane
  • EHD proteins and ferlin proteins form discrete structures in myoblasts
  • regulates trafficking from the plasma membrane and recycling
  • has a role in nucleotide-dependent membrane remodelling and its ATP-binding domain is involved in dimerization, which creates a membrane-binding region
  • plasma-membrane-associated member of the EHD family that regulates internalization
  • EHD1 and EHD3 control traffic to the endocytic recycling compartment (ERC) and from the ERC to the plasma membrane, while EHD2 modulates internalization
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS endocytosis transport
    a component
    small molecule metal binding, nucleotide,
  • ATP
  • Ca2+
  • protein
  • associating with the AP2 adaptor protein complex to initiate endocytic vesicle formation
  • connecting endocytosis to the actin cytoskeleton through interactions of its N-terminal domain with membranes and its C-terminal EH domain with EHBP1
  • interacting with Asn-Pro-Phe (NPF) motifs in target proteins
  • Myoferlin (MYOF) directly interacts with EHD2
  • interacting with EHD1
  • may also interact with EHD3 and EHD4
  • FER1L5 binds directly to the endocytic recycling proteins EHD1 and EHD2 and the second C2 domain in FER1L5 mediates this interaction
  • regulates trafficking from the plasma membrane by controlling RAC1 activity
  • role of INPP5J in regulating EHD2 plasma membrane localization
  • cell & other
  • binding to liposomes
