Fermitin family member 1

kindlin-1, KIND1, FERMT1
This gene encodes a member of the fermitin family, and contains a FERM domain and a pleckstrin homology domain. The encoded protein is involved in integrin signaling and linkage of the actin cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix. Mutations in this gene have been linked to Kindler syndrome.

Review
New
Fässler et al., Martinsried, Germany. In J Cell Sci, Feb 2016
Mutations in the KINDLIN-1 (also known as FERMT1) gene cause Kindler syndrome (KS) - in which mainly skin and intestine are affected, whereas mutations in the KINDLIN-3 (also known as FERMT3) gene cause leukocyte adhesion deficiency type III (LAD III), which is characterized by impaired extravasation of blood effector cells and severe, spontaneous bleedings.
