  • Function
    Binds to actin filaments in muscle and non-muscle cells. Plays a central role, in association with the troponin complex, in the calcium dependent regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction. Smooth muscle contraction is regulated by interaction with caldesmon. In non-muscle cells is implicated in stabilizing cytoskeleton actin filaments. The non-muscle isoform may have a role in agonist-mediated receptor internalization.
  • Tissue specificity
    Present in primary breast cancer tissue, absent from normal breast tissue.
  • Involvement in disease
    Nemaline myopathy 4 (NEM4) [MIM:609285]: 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 4 presents from infancy to childhood with hypotonia and moderate-to-severe proximal weakness with minimal or no progression. Major motor milestones are delayed but independent ambulation is usually achieved, although a wheelchair may be needed in later life. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
    Arthrogryposis, distal, 1A (DA1A) [MIM:108120]: A form of distal arthrogryposis, a disease characterized by congenital joint contractures that mainly involve two or more distal parts of the limbs, in the absence of a primary neurological or muscle disease. Distal arthrogryposis type 1 is characterized largely by camptodactyly and clubfoot. Hypoplasia and/or absence of some interphalangeal creases is common. The shoulders and hips are less frequently affected. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the tropomyosin family.
  • Domain
    The molecule is in a coiled coil structure that is formed by 2 polypeptide chains. The sequence exhibits a prominent seven-residues periodicity.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated on Ser-61 by PIK3CG. Phosphorylation on Ser-61 is required for ADRB2 internalization.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.
