Background
Piezos are large transmembrane proteins conserved among various species, all having between 24 and 36 predicted transmembrane domains. Piezo comes from the Greek piesi, meaning pressure. The FAM38A gene encodes PIEZO1, a protein that induces mechanically activated (MA) currents in various cell types (Coste et al., 2010 [PubMed 20813920]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2010]
Synonyms
PIEZO1; piezo-type mechanosensitive ion channel component 1; DHS; Mib; FAM38A; protein PIEZO1; family with sequence similarity 38, member A; membrane protein induced by beta-amyloid treatment
