Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SSH3 Gene
The ADF (actin-depolymerizing factor)/cofilin family (see MIM 601442) is composed of stimulus-responsive mediators of actin dynamics. ADF/cofilin proteins are inactivated by kinases such as LIM domain kinase-1 (LIMK1; MIM 601329). The SSH family appears to play a role in actin dynamics by reactivating ADF/cofilin proteins in vivo (Niwa et al., 2002 [PubMed 11832213]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SSH3 Gene
SSH3 (Slingshot Protein Phosphatase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Regulation of actin cytoskeleton and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and protein tyrosine/serine/threonine phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SSH1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SSH3 Gene
Protein phosphatase which may play a role in the regulation of actin filament dynamics. Can dephosphorylate and activate the actin binding/depolymerizing factor cofilin, which subsequently binds to actin filaments and stimulates their disassembly (By similarity).
