First C-terminal immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of palladin; member of the I-set of Ig superfamily (IgSF) domains
The members here are composed of the C-terminal immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of palladin. Palladin belongs to the palladin-myotilin-myopalladin family. Proteins belonging to this family contain multiple Ig-like domains and function as scaffolds, modulating actin cytoskeleton. Palladin binds to alpha-actinin ezrin, vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein VASP, SPIN90 (also known as DIP or mDia interacting protein), and Src. Palladin also binds F-actin directly, via its Ig3 domain. Palladin is expressed as several alternatively spliced isoforms, having various combinations of Ig-like domains, in a cell-type-specific manner. It has been suggested that palladin's different Ig-like domains may be specialized for distinct functions. This group belongs to the I-set of IgSF domains, having A-B-E-D strands in one beta-sheet and A'-G-F-C-C' in the other. Like the V-set Ig domains, members of the I-set have a discontinuous A strand, but lack a C" strand.
