NCKAP1 (NCK Associated Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NCKAP1 include Nance-Horan Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Regulation of actin cytoskeleton and E-cadherin signaling in the nascent adherens junction. GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and Rac GTPase binding. An important paralog of this gene is NCKAP1L.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NCKAP1 Gene
Part of the WAVE complex that regulates lamellipodia formation. The WAVE complex regulates actin filament reorganization via its interaction with the Arp2/3 complex. Actin remodeling activity is regulated by RAC1. As component of the WAVE1 complex, required for BDNF-NTRK2 endocytic trafficking and signaling from early endosomes.
