WB 1/250 - 1/500.


  • Function
    Acts as a nucleation-promoting factor (NPF) that stimulates Arp2/3-mediated actin polymerization both at the Golgi apparatus and along tubular membranes. Involved as a regulator of Golgi positioning and morphology. Participates in vesicle transport between the reticulum endoplasmic and the Golgi complex.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain, lung, heart, colon and kidney (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 2 WH2 domains.
  • Domain
    The N-terminal region associates with membranes, the coiled-coil region binds to microtubules and the WH2 domains promotes actin nucleation.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Golgi apparatus > cis-Golgi network. Localized to a perinuclear compartment near the microtubule-organizing center (MTOC). Also detected on tubulo-vesicular structures in the cell periphery that frequently localized along microtubules.
