Summaries for WASH4P Gene

GeneCards Summary for WASH4P Gene

WASH4P (WAS Protein Family Homolog 4 Pseudogene) is a Pseudogene. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and alpha-tubulin binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WASH4P Gene

  • May act as a nucleation-promoting factor at the surface of endosomes, where it recruits and activates the Arp2/3 complex to induce actin polymerization, playing a key role in the fission of tubules that serve as transport intermediates during endosome sorting.

    Protein attributes for WASH4P Gene

    477 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    51595 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts (via WHD1 region) with FAM21C; the interaction is direct (By similarity).
    • WASH genes duplicated to multiple chromosomal ends during primate evolution, with highest copy number reached in humans, whose WASH repertoires probably vary extensively among individuals (PubMed:18159949). It is therefore difficult to determine which gene is functional or not. The telomeric region of chromosome 9p is paralogous to the pericentromeric regions of chromosome 9 as well as to 2q. Paralogous regions contain 7 transcriptional units. Duplicated WASH genes are also present in the Xq/Yq pseudoautosomal region, as well as on chromosome 1 and 15. The chromosome 16 copy seems to be a pseudogene.
