(redirected from Caveolin 1)


The 22-kD transmembrane protein associated with the membranes of caveolae and with Golgi membranes; believed to function in signal transduction, in cholesterol transport, and metabolism of the cell.

Besides mutations in the BMPR2, ALK1, and ENG genes, rare mutations that account for approximately 5% of the heritable PAHs included SMAD9, caveolin 1 (CAV1), and potassium channel, subfamily K, member 3 (KCNK3) genes.
We observed that most circulation related terms contain caveolin 1 (CAV1), myosin, light chain 3, alkali (MYL3), endothelin 2 (EDN2), and NOS3 genes.
A further example of aging dysfunction related to cell senescence is shown by the scaffolding protein Caveolin 1 (Cav1), which controls molecular signaling in caveolar membranes.
The increased levels of caveolin 1 in MVE has a cardioprotective effect in ischemia/reperfusion-induced damage, probably due to the increased endothelial NO release [5].
Caveolin 1 binds to the protein calmodulin, which results in inhibition of NOS.
