    ..The "A domain" is similar in sequence to the von Willebrand A (VWA) domain found in integrins. The presence of C2 domains suggests that copines may be involved in cell signaling and/or membrane trafficking pathways...

    Eukaryot Cell 6:430-42. 2007
    ..All of the copine genes except cpnF showed an upregulation of mRNA expression at one or two developmental transitions, suggesting that copines may be important regulators of Dictyostelium development...

    ..Our results suggest that CpnA plays a role in the regulation of the signaling pathways, including ammonia signaling, necessary for sensing and/or orienting toward light and heat in the prestalk cells of the Dictyostelium slug...
