Twinfilin, actin-binding protein, homolog 1

A-6, twinfilin
This gene encodes twinfilin, an actin monomer-binding protein conserved from yeast to mammals. Studies of the mouse counterpart suggest that this protein may be an actin monomer-binding protein, and its localization to cortical G-actin-rich structures may be regulated by the small GTPase RAC1.

Combinatorial genetic analysis of a network of actin disassembly-promoting factors.
Goode et al., Waltham, United States. In Cytoskeleton (hoboken), Jul 2015
Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an ideal system to tackle this problem, both because of its amenabilities to genetic manipulation and live-cell imaging and because only a single gene encodes each of the core disassembly factors: cofilin (COF1), Srv2/CAP (SRV2), Aip1 (AIP1), GMF (GMF1/AIM7), coronin (CRN1), and twinfilin (TWF1).
Ssp1 CaMKK: A Sensor of Actin Polarization That Controls Mitotic Commitment through Srk1 in Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
Aligue et al., Barcelona, Spain. In Plos One, 2014
We show that inhibition of Cdc25 by Srk1 is regulated by Ssp1; and also that restoring growth polarity and actin localization of ssp1-deleted cells by removing the actin-monomer-binding protein, twinfilin, is sufficient to suppress the ssp1 phenotype.

Fasano et al., Busto Arsizio, Italy. In J Proteome Res, 2014
A similar result is achieved by evaluating all peptides of a selected panel of proteins (gelsolin, moesin, septin-6, twinfilin-2, lymphocyte-specific protein 1, vimentin, transaldolase), with an area under the curve of 0.840.
