Detailed entry information

Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0003322
UniProt IDQ8TF74
Primary gene name(s)WIPF2
Synonym gene name(s)WICH, WIRE
Protein nameWAS/WASL-interacting protein family member 2
Protein functionPlays an active role in the formation of cell surface protrusions downstream of activated PDGFB receptors. Plays an important role in actin-microspike formation through cooperation with WASL. May cooperate with WASP and WASL to induce mobilization and reorganization of the actin filament system. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11829459, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12213210}.
Subcellular locationCytoplasm, cytoskeleton {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11829459, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12213210}. Note=Localized to stress fibers and bundles of actin filaments.
