Vang-like protein (IPR009539)

Short name: VANGL

Family relationships



VANGL proteins play important roles in the establishment of planar cell polarity (PCP) [PMID: 24981109]. Vangl2 is required for retinal axon guidance [PMID: 25990804], kidney-branching morphogenesis and glomerular maturation [PMID: 20843830]. It also plays a role in the orientation of stereociliary bundles in the cochlea and is required for polarization and movement of myocardializing cells in the outflow tract and seems to act via RHOA signaling to regulate this process [PMID: 15637299]. It is required for cell surface localization of FZD3 and FZD6 in the inner ear [PMID: 16495441].
