CRRD ID: 13911540
Species: Sus scrofa
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: CAVIN1
Name: caveolae associated protein 1
Acc ID: GO:0005901
Term: caveola
Definition: A membrane raft that forms small pit, depression, or invagination that communicates with the outside of a cell and extends inward, indenting the cytoplasm and the cell membrane. Examples include flask-shaped invaginations of the plasma membrane in adipocytes associated with caveolin proteins, and minute pits or incuppings of the cell membrane formed during pinocytosis. Caveolae may be pinched off to form free vesicles within the cytoplasm.
