Calmodulin-regulated spectrin-associated protein 2 - Q08AD1 (CAMP2_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Key microtubule-organizing protein that specifically binds the minus-end of non-centrosomal microtubules and regulates their dynamics and organization (PubMed:23169647, PubMed:24486153, PubMed:24706919). Specifically recognizes growing microtubule minus-ends and autonomously decorates and stabilizes microtubule lattice formed by microtubule minus-end polymerization (PubMed:24486153, PubMed:24706919). Acts on free microtubule minus-ends that are not capped by microtubule-nucleating proteins or other factors and protects microtubule minus-ends from depolymerization (PubMed:24486153, PubMed:24706919). In addition, it also reduces the velocity of microtubule polymerization (PubMed:24486153, PubMed:24706919). Through the microtubule cytoskeleton, also regulates the organization of cellular organelles including the Golgi and the early endosomes (PubMed:27666745). Essential for the tethering, but not for nucleation of non-centrosomal microtubules at the Golgi: together with Golgi-associated proteins AKAP9 and PDE4DIP, required to tether non-centrosomal minus-end microtubules to the Golgi, an important step for polarized cell movement (PubMed:27666745). Also acts as a regulator of neuronal polarity and development: localizes to non-centrosomal microtubule minus-ends in neurons and stabilizes non-centrosomal microtubules, which is required for neuronal polarity, axon specification and dendritic branch formation (PubMed:24908486). Through the microtubule cytoskeleton, regulates the autophagosome transport (PubMed:28726242). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts with CAMSAP3 (By similarity). Interacts with KATNA1 and KATNB1; leading to regulate the length of CAMSAP2-decorated microtubule stretches (PubMed:24486153). Interacts with a complex formed by AKAP9 and PDE4DIP isoform 13/MMG8/SMYLE, which recruits CAMSAP2 to the Golgi (PubMed:27666745, PubMed:28814570). Interacts with MAPRE1/EB1 (PubMed:28726242, PubMed:28814570). UniProt
The MBD (microtubule-binding domain) region can recognize some features of the microtubule lattice, which might contribute to the specific decoration of growing microtubule minus-ends by CAMSAP2. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
