Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ARPC5 Gene
This gene encodes one of seven subunits of the human Arp2/3 protein complex. The Arp2/3 protein complex has been implicated in the control of actin polymerization in cells and has been conserved through evolution. The exact role of the protein encoded by this gene, the p16 subunit, has yet to be determined. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been observed for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for ARPC5 Gene
ARPC5 (Actin Related Protein 2/3 Complex Subunit 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immune response CCR3 signaling in eosinophils and Innate Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include actin filament binding and structural constituent of cytoskeleton. An important paralog of this gene is ARPC5L.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARPC5 Gene
Functions as component of the Arp2/3 complex which is involved in regulation of actin polymerization and together with an activating nucleation-promoting factor (NPF) mediates the formation of branched actin networks.
