    1128 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    128790 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the WAVE1 complex composed of ABI2, CYFIP1 or CYFIP2, BRK1, NCKAP1 and WASF1/WAVE1. Within the complex, a heterdimer containing NCKAP1 and CYFIP1 interacts with a heterotrimer formed by WAVE1, ABI2 and BRK1. Component of the WAVE2 complex composed of ABI1, CYFIP1/SRA1, NCKAP1/NAP1 and WASF2/WAVE2. CYFIP2 binds to activated RAC1 which causes the complex to dissociate, releasing activated WASF1. The complex can also be activated by NCK1. Associates preferentially with the first SH3 domain of NCK. Interacts with NYAP1, NYAP2 and MYO16 (By similarity). Interacts with human cytomegalovirus protein UL135.
    • Sequence=BAA25513.2; Type=Erroneous initiation; Note=Translation N-terminally shortened.; Evidence={ECO:0000305};
