Fms interacting protein (FMIP) is a substrate, as well as a binding partner, of Fms tyrosine kinase. FMIP is a ubiquitous nuclear/cytoplasm shuttling protein with a leucine zipper. The overexpression of FMIP in myeloid progenitor cells alters the macrophage colony stimulating factor (M-CSF)-mediated macrophage differentiation. These cells differentiate into the granulocytic lineage rather than into the macrophage lineage. Furthermore, it has been shown that FMIP is one of the major molecules phosphorylated via the insulin-mediated signaling pathway in a preadipocyte cell line, 3T3-L1 cells, suggesting that FMIP may play a role in adipocyte differentiation.
