|Function||Plays a role in mediating store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE), a Ca(2+) influx following depletion of intracellular Ca(2+) stores (PubMed:15866891, PubMed:16005298, PubMed:16208375, PubMed:16537481, PubMed:16733527, PubMed:16766533, PubMed:16807233, PubMed:18854159, PubMed:19249086, PubMed:22464749, PubMed:24069340, PubMed:24351972, PubMed:24591628, PubMed:26322679, PubMed:25326555). Acts as Ca(2+) sensor in the endoplasmic reticulum via its EF-hand domain. Upon Ca(2+) depletion, translocates from the endoplasmic reticulum to the plasma membrane where it activates the Ca(2+) release- activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channel subunit ORAI1 (PubMed:16208375, PubMed:16537481). Involved in enamel formation (PubMed:24621671). Activated following interaction with TMEM110/STIMATE, leading to promote STIM1 conformational switch (PubMed:26322679).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton Sarcoplasmic reticulum Note=Translocates from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell membrane in response to a depletion of intracellular calcium and is detected at punctae corresponding to junctions between the endoplasmic reticulum and the cell membrane (PubMed:19249086, PubMed:16005298, PubMed:16208375, PubMed:18854159). Associated with the microtubule network at the growing distal tip of microtubules (PubMed:19632184).|

STIM1 Antibody: In T lymphocytes, the sole pathway for Ca2+ entry following antigen-receptor binding is through store-operated Ca2+-release-activated Ca2+ (CRAC) channels. These channels are made up of the pore-forming subunit ORAI1 and the stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1), a protein that functions as a Ca2+ sensor and activates the CRAC channels, migrating to the plasma membrane from endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-like sites which act as the Ca2+ store. A related molecule, STIM2, acts to inhibit the STIM1-mediated store-operated Ca2+ entry, and can form complexes with STIM1, suggesting they may play a coordinated role in controlling Ca2+ entry.
