Summaries for CAPG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CAPG Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the gelsolin/villin family of actin-regulatory proteins. The encoded protein reversibly blocks the barbed ends of F-actin filaments in a Ca2+ and phosphoinositide-regulated manner, but does not sever preformed actin filaments. By capping the barbed ends of actin filaments, the encoded protein contributes to the control of actin-based motility in non-muscle cells. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CAPG Gene

CAPG (Capping Actin Protein, Gelsolin Like) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and protein complex binding. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000283430.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CAPG Gene

  • Calcium-sensitive protein which reversibly blocks the barbed ends of actin filaments but does not sever preformed actin filaments. May play an important role in macrophage function. May play a role in regulating cytoplasmic and/or nuclear structures through potential interactions with actin. May bind DNA.
