Gene: WAS (WASP actin nucleation promoting factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: WAS
Name: WASP actin nucleation promoting factor
CRRD ID: 1349471
Description: Exhibits SH3 domain binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Cdc42 protein signal transduction; positive regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process; and regulation of actin filament organization. Localizes to several cellular components, including actin filament; cytosol; and site of double-strand break. Implicated in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and severe congenital neutropenia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: eczema-thrombocytopenia; IMD2; SCNX; THC; THC1; thrombocytopenia 1 (X-linked); WASP; WASPA; Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome; wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein
