Pleckstrin homology domain-containing family M member 1 also known as PLEKHM1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PLEKHM1 gene.[1][2]


PLEKHM1 may have critical function in vesicular transport in osteoclasts.[3]

Clinical significance[edit]

Mutations in the PLEKHM1 gene are associated with osteopetrosis OPTB6.[3]
