Summaries for ACTA1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ACTA1 Gene

  • The product encoded by this gene belongs to the actin family of proteins, which are highly conserved proteins that play a role in cell motility, structure and integrity. Alpha, beta and gamma actin isoforms have been identified, with alpha actins being a major constituent of the contractile apparatus, while beta and gamma actins are involved in the regulation of cell motility. This actin is an alpha actin that is found in skeletal muscle. Mutations in this gene cause nemaline myopathy type 3, congenital myopathy with excess of thin myofilaments, congenital myopathy with cores, and congenital myopathy with fiber-type disproportion, diseases that lead to muscle fiber defects.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACTA1 Gene

  • Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells.

Tocris Summary for ACTA1 Gene

  • Actin is a ubiquitous globular protein that is one of the most highly-conserved proteins known. It is found in two main states: G-actin is the globular monomeric form, whereas F-actin forms helical polymers. Both G- and F-actin are intrinsically flexible structures.

    377 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    42051 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Polymerization of globular actin (G-actin) leads to a structural filament (F-actin) in the form of a two-stranded helix. Each actin can bind to 4 others. Identified in a complex composed of ACTA1, COBL, GSN AND TMSB4X (By similarity). Interacts with TTID. Interacts (via its C-terminus) with USP25; the interaction occurs for all USP25 isoforms but is strongest for isoform USP25m in muscle differentiating cells.
    • In vertebrates 3 main groups of actin isoforms, alpha, beta and gamma have been identified. The alpha actins are found in muscle tissues and are a major constituent of the contractile apparatus. The beta and gamma actins coexist in most cell types as components of the cytoskeleton and as mediators of internal cell motility.

neXtProt entry for ACTA1 Gene

Post-translational modifications for ACTA1 Gene

  • Oxidation of Met-46 and Met-49 by MICALs (MICAL1, MICAL2 or MICAL3) to form methionine sulfoxide promotes actin filament depolymerization. MICAL1 and MICAL2 produce the (R)-S-oxide form. The (R)-S-oxide form is reverted by MSRB1 and MSRB2, which promotes actin repolymerization.
  • Monomethylation at Lys-86 (K84me1) regulates actin-myosin interaction and actomyosin-dependent processes. Demethylation by ALKBH4 is required for maintaining actomyosin dynamics supporting normal cleavage furrow ingression during cytokinesis and cell migration.
  • (Microbial infection) Monomeric actin is cross-linked by V.cholerae toxins RtxA and VgrG1 in case of infection: bacterial toxins mediate the cross-link between Lys-52 of one monomer and Glu-272 of another actin monomer, resulting in formation of highly toxic actin oligomers that cause cell rounding (PubMed:19015515). The toxin can be highly efficient at very low concentrations by acting on formin homology family proteins: toxic actin oligomers bind with high affinity to formins and adversely affect both nucleation and elongation abilities of formins, causing their potent inhibition in both profilin-dependent and independent manners (PubMed:26228148).

  • Nemaline myopathy 3 (NEM3) [MIM:161800]: A form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-like or rod-shaped structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10508519, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11166164, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11333380, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15198992, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15236405, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15336687, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15520409, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16427282, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16945537, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17705262, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22442437, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23650303, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25938801}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Myopathy, actin, congenital, with excess of thin myofilaments (MPCETM) [MIM:161800]: A congenital muscular disorder characterized at histological level by areas of sarcoplasm devoid of normal myofibrils and mitochondria, and replaced with dense masses of thin filaments. Central cores, rods, ragged red fibers, and necrosis are absent. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10508519}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Myopathy, congenital, with fiber-type disproportion (CFTD) [MIM:255310]: A genetically heterogeneous disorder in which there is relative hypotrophy of type 1 muscle fibers compared to type 2 fibers on skeletal muscle biopsy. However, these findings are not specific and can be found in many different myopathic and neuropathic conditions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15468086, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17387733}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Myopathy, scapulohumeroperoneal (SHPM) [MIM:616852]: An autosomal dominant muscular disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness with initial scapulo-humeral-peroneal and distal distribution. Over time, muscle weakness progresses to proximal muscle groups. Clinical characteristics include scapular winging, mild lower facial weakness, foot drop due to foot eversion and dorsiflexion weakness, and selective muscle atrophy. Age at onset and disease progression are variable. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25938801}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
