Gene Family: Copines (CPNE)

A subset of : C2 domain containing

Copine: In molecular biology, copines is a name for the group of human proteins that includes members such as CPNE1, CPNE4, CPNE6, and CPNE8. These are highly conserved, calcium-dependent membrane proteins found in a variety of eukaryotes. The domain structure of these proteins suggests that they may have a role in membrane trafficking in some prokaryotes as well as eukaryotes. [Source: Wikipedia]
