This gene encodes a 42.3 kD subunit of dynactin, a macromolecular complex consisting of 10 subunits ranging in size from 22 to 150 kD. Dynactin binds to both microtubules and cytoplasmic dynein and is involved in a diverse array of cellular functions, including ER-to-Golgi transport, the centripetal movement of lysosomes and endosomes, spindle formation, chromosome movement, nuclear positioning, and axonogenesis. This subunit, like ACTR1A, is an actin-related protein. These two proteins, which are of equal length and share 90% amino acid identity, are present in a constant ratio of approximately 1:15 in the dynactin complex. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ACTR1B Gene
ACTR1B (ARP1 Actin-Related Protein 1 Homolog B, Centractin Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACTR1B include Pachyonychia Congenita 3 and Obesity Bmiq12. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments and Cell cycle_Spindle assembly and chromosome separation. An important paralog of this gene is ACTR1A.
