Ezrin is a member of the ezrin/radixin/moesin (ERM) family that acts as a linker between the plasma membrane and the actin cytoskeleton. Ezrin exists in a dormant, monomeric form in which its FERM/NERMAD and C-ERMAD domains are associated, masking membrane and F-actin binding regions. On production of PIP2, ezrin binds it, is recruited to the plasma membrane, and undergoes conformational changes unmasking the two binding sites.
