Family

Plasmalemma vesicle-associated protein (IPR009538)

Short name: PV-1

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several PV-1 (PLVAP) proteins, which seem to be specific to vertebrates. PV-1 is a component of the endothelial fenestral and stomatal diaphragms [PMID: 15155804, PMID: 23063469]. PV-1 is retained on the cell surface of enddotelial cells by structures capable of forming diaphragms, but undergoes rapid internalization and degradation in the absence of these structures [PMID: 22403691].
