Graphical View of Domain Structure for InterPro Entry



  • O95466
  • The DAD domain regulates activation via by an autoinhibitory interaction with the N-terminus. This autoinhibition is released upon competitive binding of an activated GTPase. The release of DAD allows the FH2 domain to then nucleate and elongate nonbranched actin filaments (By similarity).
  • Contains 1 DAD (diaphanous autoregulatory) domain.
  • Contains 1 FH2 (formin homology 2) domain.
  • Contains 1 GBD/FH3 (Rho GTPase-binding/formin homology 3) domain.
  • Belongs to the formin homology family.
