    at STAGE
  • an N terminal motor domain containing ATP and actin-binding sites
  • a neck containing one IQ calmodulin or calmodulin-like light chain binding domain
  • an SH3 domain of MYO1E tail interacting with TJP1, a component of the slit diaphragm complex and tight junctions, suggesting that MYO1E represents a component of the slit diaphragm complex and may contribute to regulating junctional integrity in kidney podocytes
  • two Tail Homology domains, TH2 domain providing the key signal for localization to invadosomes, while TH1 domain interactions facilitate MYO1E targeting to the plasma membrane-proximal locations within the rosettes
  • C-terminal tail domain includes a basic region required for localization to clathrin-coated vesicles and contains a putative pleckstrin-homology (PH) domain that has been shown to play a role in phospholipid binding in other myosin-I proteins
  • mono polymer complex
    interspecies homolog to rattus Myo1e (95.8 pc)
    homolog to murine Myo1e (96.2 pc)
  • subclass-1 member of the myosin-I family
  • CATEGORY motor/contractile
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane,junction
  • co-localizes with clathrin- and dynamin-containing puncta at the plasma membrane and this co-localization requires an intact SH3 domain
  • basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a microfilament motor
  • involved in rapid sliding
  • may contribute to receptor-mediated endocytosis
  • potentially playing an important role in cortical granule exocytosis
  • may be playing an important role in podocyte function and normal glomerular filtration
  • anchored by lipid interactions, could concentrate MYO1E-binding proteins, such as dynamin and synaptojanin-1, at actin-rich regions of the membrane
  • coordinates actin assembly and cargo trafficking during clathrin-mediated endocytosis
  • actin-dependent molecular motor that plays an important role in kidney functions
  • its expression in podocytes is necessary for normal glomerular filtration and podocyte defects are likely to represent the primary pathway leading to glomerular disease associated with MYO1E mutations
  • actin-based motor protein that has been implicated in cell adhesion and migration
  • may then act as a scaffold, linking the plasma membrane with the actin cytoskeleton and helping direct new invadosome formation to the periphery of the rosette
  • non-redundant function of the motor protein MYO1E in the regulation of TLR4-controlled, cytoskeleton-associated functional properties of macrophages and dendritic cells, and in induction of a full MHC-II-restricted adaptive immune response
