Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Probable regulator of the Hippo/SWH (Sav/Wts/Hpo) signaling pathway, a signaling pathway that plays a pivotal role in tumor suppression by restricting proliferation and promoting apoptosis. Along with WWC1 can synergistically induce the phosphorylation of LATS1 and LATS2 and can probably function in the regulation of the Hippo/SWH (Sav/Wts/Hpo) signaling pathway. May act as a membrane stabilizing protein. May inhibit PI3 kinase by binding to AGAP2 and impairing its stimulating activity. Suppresses cell proliferation and tumorigenesis by inhibiting the CUL4A-RBX1-DDB1-VprBP/DCAF1 E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex. Plays a role in lens development and is required for complete fiber cell terminal differentiation, maintenance of cell polarity and separation of the lens vesicle from the corneal epithelium.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Results demonstrate that loss of merlin function in Schwann Cells (SCs) leads to increased endoneurial space and ultrastructural myelin alterations in the sciatic nerve before and after injury. Loss of merlin function in SCs delays neural recovery following injury. Nevertheless, there were no significant functional or electrophysiological differences in neural regeneration attributable to Nf2 mutation in SCs. PMID: 29408605
