Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0007888
UniProt IDO43516
Primary gene name(s)WIPF1
Synonym gene name(s)WASPIP, WIP
Protein nameWAS/WASL-interacting protein family member 1
Protein functionPlays a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Contributes with NCK1 and GRB2 in the recruitment and activation of WASL. May participate in regulating the subcellular localization of WASL, resulting in the disassembly of stress fibers in favor of filopodia formation. Plays a role in the formation of cell ruffles, By similarity. Plays an important role in the intracellular motility of vaccinia virus by functioning as an adapter for recruiting WASL to vaccinia virus. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10878810, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19910490, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9405671}.
Subcellular locationCytoplasmic vesicle {ECO:0000250}. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton {ECO:0000250}. Cell projection, ruffle {ECO:0000269|PubMed:19910490}. Note=Vesicle surfaces and along actin tails. Colocalizes with actin stress fibers. When coexpressed with WASL, no longer associated with actin filaments but accumulated in perinuclear and cortical areas like WASL, By similarity. {ECO:0000250}.
