Protein Information
Name VCL
Function Actin filament (F-actin)-binding protein involved in cell-matrix adhesion and cell-cell adhesion. Regulates cell- surface E-cadherin expression and potentiates mechanosensing by the E-cadherin complex. May also play important roles in cell morphology and locomotion.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell junction, adherens junction. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cell junction, focal adhesion. Note=Cytoplasmic face of adhesion plaques. Recruitment to cell-cell junctions occurs in a myosin II- dependent manner. Interaction with CTNNB1 is necessary for its localization to the cell-cell junctions (By similarity) Colocalizes with LIMD1 in the focal adhesions.
Tissue Location Metavinculin is muscle-specific.

Vinculin is a cytoskeletal protein that plays an important role in the regulation of focal adhesions and embryonic development (1). Three structural vinculin domains include an amino-terminal head, a short flexible proline-rich region and a carboxy-terminal tail (2). Expression of vinculin were shown to be affected by the level of actin expression (2,3). Vinculin deficiencies are associated with a decrease in cell adhesion and an increase in cell motility, suggesting a possible role in metastatic growth (4). Defects in VCL are the cause of cardiomyopathy dilated type 1W (CMD1W) (5).
