  • Function
    Adapter protein that links membrane-bound small G-proteins to cytoplasmic effector proteins. Necessary for CDC42-mediated reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and for RAC1-mediated membrane ruffling. Involved in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton by WASF family members and the Arp2/3 complex. Plays a role in neurite growth. Acts syngeristically with ENAH to promote filipodia formation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Isoform 1 and isoform 4 are expressed almost exclusively in brain. Isoform 4 is barely detectable in placenta, prostate and testis. A short isoform is ubiquitous, with the highest expression in liver, prostate, testis and placenta.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 IMD (IRSp53/MIM homology) domain.
    Contains 1 SH3 domain.
  • Domain
    The IMD domain forms a coiled coil. The isolated domain can induce actin bundling and filopodia formation. In the absence of G-proteins intramolecular interaction between the IMD and the SH3 domain gives rise to an auto-inhibited state of the protein. Interaction of the IMD with RAC1 or CDC42 leads to activation.
    The SH3 domain interacts with ATN1, BAI1, WASF1, WASF2, SHANK1, DIAPH1 and ENAH.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated on tyrosine residues by INSR in response to insulin treatment.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Membrane. Cell projection > filopodium. Cell projection > ruffle. Detected throughout the cytoplasm in the absence of specific binding partners. Detected in filopodia and close to membrane ruffles.
