Alpha actinins belong to the spectrin gene superfamilywhich represents a diverse group of cytoskeletal proteins,including the alpha and beta spectrins and dystrophins. Alphaactinin is an actin-binding protein with multiple roles indifferent cell types. In nonmuscle cells, the cytoskeletal isoformis found along microfilament bundles and adherens-type junctions,where it is involved in binding actin to the membrane. In contrast,skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle isoforms are localized to theZ-disc and analogous dense bodies, where they help anchor themyofibrillar actin filaments. This gene encodes a muscle-specific,alpha actinin isoform that is expressed in both skeletal andcardiac muscles.
