STOM, also named as BND7, EPB72, Stomatin and Protein 7.2b, belongs to the band 7/mec-2 family. It is thought to regulate cation conductance. STOM may regulate ACCN1 and ACCN3 gating. STOM is a membrane protein involved in regulation of monovalent cation transport through lipid membranes. Interestingly, STOM (which has a structure similar to caveolin) is a major lipid-raft component of erythrocytes. It may have a role in membrane microdomains modulation leading to membrane budding and MPs release.(PMID:19138258)
