    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in integrin-mediated cell adhesion or spreading
  • involved in integrin function, actin organization, cell-cell adhesion
  • cysteine-histidine rich protein, an adapter protein involved in integrin and growth factor signaling
  • essential focal adhesion protein with multiple functions including regulation of the integrin-linked kinase (ILK) level, cell shape, and survival signaling
  • functioning as a molecular platform for coupling and uncoupling diverse cellular processes via overlapping but yet distinct domain interactions
  • five LIM domain protein involved in the regulation of integrin-mediated cell adhesion
  • LIMS1, and LIMS2 share overlapping functions and operate dependently and independently of their subcellular localization
  • promotes activating phosphorylation of Src family kinase and ERK1/2
  • plays an essential role in neural crest development, perhaps in part through transforming growth factor-beta signaling
  • required for the formation of integrin based adhesion structures
  • adaptor protein that binds to the integrin-linked kinase (ILK), an intracellular serine/threonine protein kinase that plays a critical role in mediating tubular epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  • through its interaction with ILK, plays an important role in regulating TGF-beta1-mediated EMT
  • LIM-only adaptor (the particularly interesting cysteine- and histidine-rich protein) playing a pivotal role in the assembly of focal adhesions (FAs)
  • 5 LIM domain-only adaptor protein that function as key components of the integrin signaling pathway and play crucial roles in multiple cellular processes
  • essential roles in myocardial growth, maturation, remodeling, and function
  • LIM1 domain of PINCH-1 is sufficient for cell attachment and the C-terminal region of PINCH-1 plays a pivotal role in cell spreading
  • plays an important role in regulating the integrin-mediated cell adhesion, migration and epithelial-mesenchymal transition
  • acts as a transcriptional regulator through controlling specific gene expression
  • regulate cardiac contractility by modulating integrin-linked kinase-protein kinase B signaling
