|Other Names||Macrophage-capping protein, Actin regulatory protein CAP-G, CAPG, AFCP, MCP|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Calcium-sensitive protein which reversibly blocks the barbed ends of actin filaments but does not sever preformed actin filaments. May play an important role in macrophage function. May play a role in regulating cytoplasmic and/or nuclear structures through potential interactions with actin. May bind DNA.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Melanosome. Note=Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV|

This gene encodes a member of the gelsolin/villin familyof actin-regulatory proteins. The encoded protein reversibly blocksthe barbed ends of F-actin filaments in a Ca2+ andphosphoinositide-regulated manner, but does not sever preformedactin filaments. By capping the barbed ends of actin filaments, theencoded protein contributes to the control of actin-based motilityin non-muscle cells. Alternatively spliced transcript variants havebeen observed, but have not been fully described. [provided byRefSeq].
