Background

BACKGROUND:FRMPD2 Antibody: The FERM and PDZ domain containing (FRMPD) protein family consists of four proteins that contain a FERM (Four-point-one, erzin, radixin, moesin) domain and at least one PDZ (PSD-95/Discs large/Zonula-occuldens-1) domain. FRMPD2 also contains an N-terminal KIND domain and three PDZ domains and is structurally similar to the protein tyrosine phosphatase PTP-BL. FRMPD2 is localized in a polarized fashion in epithelial cells at the basolateral membrane and partially co-localizes with the tight-junction marker protein Zonula-occuldens-1. Suppression of FRMPD2 expression via RNAi in Caco-2 cells results in an impairment of tight junction formation, indicating that FRMPD2 plays a major role in tight junction formation. Other experiments indicate that FRMPD2 is a binding partner to several catenin family members and recruitment of FRMPD2 to cell-cell contacts is dependent on E-cadherin-mediated cell-cell adhesion.
