  • 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 specificityWidely distributed in various tissues.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the actin-binding proteins ADF family.
    Contains 1 ADF-H domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated on Ser-3 in resting cells.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus matrix. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Almost completely in nucleus in cells exposed to heat shock or 10% dimethyl sulfoxide.
