ERM (ezrin, radixin, and moesin) proteins are cytoskeletal interacting proteins that bind cortical actin, the plasma membrane, and membrane proteins, which are found in specialized plasma membrane structures such as microvilli and filopodia. ERM proteins are regulated by phosphatidylinositol 4, 5-biphosphate (PIP(2)) and by phosphorylation of a C-terminal threonine, and its inactivation involves PIP(2) hydrolysis and/or myosin phosphatase (MP). Recently, we demonstrated that ERM proteins are… CONTINUE READING
