Summaries for FNBP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FNBP4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein containing two tryptophan-rich WW domains that binds the proline-rich formin homology 1 domains of formin family proteins, suggesting a role in the regulation of cytoskeletal dynamics during cell division and migration. It also binds intersectin family proteins suggesting a role in the maintenance of membrane curvature at sites of nascent vesicle formation. Naturally occurring mutations in this gene are associated with Waardenburg anophthalmia syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2017]
