Plays an important role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Regulates neuron morphogenesis and increases branching of axons and dendrites. Regulates dendrite branching in Purkinje cells (By similarity). Binds to and sequesters actin monomers (G actin). Nucleates actin polymerization by assembling three actin monomers in cross-filament orientation and thereby promotes growth of actin filaments at the barbed end. Can also mediate actin depolymerization at barbed ends and severing of actin filaments. Promotes formation of cell ruffles. This gene encodes a protein that contains WH2 domains (WASP, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein, homology domain-2) that interact with actin. The encoded actin regulator protein is required for growth and assembly of brush border microvilli that play a role in maintaining intestinal homeostasis. A similar protein in mouse functions in midbrain neural tube closure. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome X. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016 ...more
