FAM38A, KIAA0233, Mib, PIEZO1

Mechanotransduction, the conversion of mechanical force into biological signals, is a fundamental physiologic process of mammalian cells which influences many critical processes including embryonic development, tactile, pain, and auditory sensation, regulation of vascular tone, flow sensing in the kidney, and muscle and tendon stretch. FAM38A, also known as PIEZO1, has recently been identified as a mechanotransduction protein that gets involved in mechanosensation and stretch-activated cation channel activation. Fam38A also plays a key role in epithelial cell adhesion by maintaining integrin activation through R-Ras recruitment to the ER. Mutations in gene encoding PIEZO1 are associated with hereditary xerocytosis. Piezo1 also regulates extrusion to maintain homeostatic epithelial cell numbers. The predicted MW of Piezo1 is 286 kDa, while some reports observed 230 kDa of Piezo1. (PMID: 20016066, 28416610)
