MICALs (Molecules Interacting with CasL) are atypical multidomain flavoenzymes with diverse cellular functions. There are three known isoforms, MICAL1, MICAL2 and MICAL3, as well as the MICAL-like proteins MICAL-L1 and MICAL-L2. MICAL2 has three conserved domains: an N-terminal flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) binding domain, a calponin homology (CH) domain and a Lin11, Isl-1 and Mec-3 (LIM) domain. It has been demonstrated that MICAL2 could regulate actin stress fibers and is required for normal actin organization. In addition, MICAL2-PV, a novel splicing variants of MICAL2, has been reported to be involved in cancer progression of prostate cancer.
