Summaries for CAPZA1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CAPZA1 Gene

  • CAPZA1 is a member of the F-actin capping protein alpha subunit family. This gene encodes the alpha subunit of the barbed-end actin binding protein. The protein regulates growth of the actin filament by capping the barbed end of growing actin filaments. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CAPZA1 Gene

CAPZA1 (Capping Protein (Actin Filament) Muscle Z-Line, Alpha 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Hemostasis and Advanced glycosylation endproduct receptor signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding. An important paralog of this gene is CAPZA3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CAPZA1 Gene

  • F-actin-capping proteins bind in a Ca(2+)-independent manner to the fast growing ends of actin filaments (barbed end) thereby blocking the exchange of subunits at these ends. Unlike other capping proteins (such as gelsolin and severin), these proteins do not sever actin filaments
