  • FunctionControls reversibly actin polymerization and depolymerization in a pH-sensitive manner. It has the ability to bind G- and F-actin in a 1:1 ratio of cofilin to actin. It is the major component of intranuclear and cytoplasmic actin rods.
  • Tissue specificityIsoform CFL2b is expressed predominantly in skeletal muscle and heart. Isoform CFL2a is expressed in various tissues.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in CFL2 are the cause of nemaline myopathy type 7 (NEM7) [MIM:610687]. A form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-or rod-like structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination. Nemaline myopathy type 7 presents at birth with hypotonia and generalized weakness. Major motor milestones are delayed, but independent ambulation is achieved.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the actin-binding proteins ADF family.
    Contains 1 ADF-H domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The phosphorylation of Ser-24 may prevent recognition of the nuclear localization signal.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus matrix. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.
  • Information by UniProt
