vinculin

Protein (130 kD) isolated from muscle (cardiac and smooth), fibroblasts and epithelial cells. Associated with the cytoplasmic face of focal adhesions: may connect microfilaments to plasma membrane integral proteins through talin.

Vinculin

In mammalian cells, vinculin is a membrane-cytoskeletal protein in focal adhesion plaques that is involved in linkage of integrin adhesion molecules to the actin cytoskeleton. Discovered independently by Benny Geiger and Keith Burridge, its sequence is 20%-30% similar to ╬▒-catenin, which serves a similar function. Vinculin is a 117-kDa cytoskelet...
