Membrane-associated guanylate kinases (MAGUKs) are important adaptor proteins involved in the assembly of protein;complexes at sites of cell-cell contact. They are found in synapses, adherens junctions, and tight junctions. All;MAGUKs contain at least 1 PDZ domain, an SH3 domain, and a GUK domain, and many contain 1 or 2 L27 domains, which are;involved in multimerization of MAGUKs. MPP7 belongs to the p55 stardust subfamily of MAGUKs, which is named for a;Drosophila gene required for establishment of cell polarity in the developing fly embryo (Bohl et al., 2007 (PubMed;17237226)).
