FUNCTION: This gene encodes a scaffolding molecule that regulates the actin cytoskeleton. The protein directly interacts with filamentous actin and a variety of cell membrane proteins through multiple actin binding sites, SH3 domains, and a proline-rich region containing binding sites for SH3 domains. The cytoplasmic protein localizes to membrane ruffles, lipid rafts, and the leading edges of cells. It is implicated in dynamic actin remodeling and membrane trafficking that occurs during receptor endocytosis and cytokinesis. The mouse genome contains at least two pseudogenes located on chromosomes 9 and 17. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit impaired immune function and die at 6 to 7 weeks of age from kidney failure associated with podocyte defects and mesangial cell hyperplasia. Heterozygotes develop glomerular changes around 9 months. [provided by MGI curators]
