Schwannomin interacting protein 1 (IPR015649)

Short name: SCHIP_1

Family relationships



SCHIP-1 is a coiled-coil protein that specifically associates with schwannomin in vitro and in vivo. The product of the neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) tumour suppressor gene, known as schwannomin or merlin, is involved in NF2-associated and sporadic schwannomas and meningiomas. It is closely related to the ezrin-radixin-moesin family members, which link membrane proteins to the cytoskeleton. Association with SCHIP-1 can be observed only with some naturally occurring mutants of schwannomin, or a schwannomin spliced isoform lacking exons 2 and 3, but not with the schwannomin isoform exhibiting growth-suppressive activity [PMID: 10669747].

This entry consists of mammalian SCHIP-1 proteins from Mus musculus (Mouse) and Homo sapiens (Human).
