Actin filament associated protein 1

AFAP, AFAP-110, actin filament-associated protein AFAP-110
The protein encoded by this gene is a Src binding partner. It may represent a potential modulator of actin filament integrity in response to cellular signals, and may function as an adaptor protein by linking Src family members and/or other signaling proteins to actin filaments. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008] (from NCBI)

Typical FAP is characterized by hundreds to thousands of colorectal adenomatous polyps and by several extra-colonic manifestations; an attenuated form of polyposis (AFAP), presenting less than 100 adenomas and later onset, has been reported.
Identification of an APC Variant in a Patient with Clinical Attenuated Familial Adenomatous Polyposis.
Gagliano et al., Honolulu, United States. In Case Report Med, 2013
The objective of this case report is to discuss an unclassified germline variant of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene identified in an older patient with attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis syndrome (AFAP).

Attenuated FAP (AFAP) is a less severe form of FAP, marked by the presence of < 100 polyps and a later onset of colorectal cancer (CRC).
Tks5 recruits AFAP-110, p190RhoGAP, and cortactin for podosome formation.
GeneRIF
Gimona et al., Chieti, Italy. In Exp Cell Res, 2009
Results demonstrate that Tks5 plays a central role in the recruitment of AFAP-110, p190RhoGAP, and cortactin to drive podosome formation.
AFAP120 regulates actin organization during neuronal differentiation.
GeneRIF
Lanier et al., Minneapolis, United States. In Differentiation, 2009
These results indicate that AFAP120 plays a role in organizing dynamic actin structures during neuronal differentiation and suggest that AFAP120 may help regulate the transition from motile precursor to morphologically differentiated neurons.

Review
Rozen et al., Kefar Sava, Israel. In Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2008
A less aggressive variant of FAP, attenuated FAP (AFAP), is characterized by fewer colorectal adenomatous polyps (usually 10 to 100), later age of adenoma appearance and a lower cancer risk.

Review
Durno, Toronto, Canada. In Can J Gastroenterol, 2007
Attenuated familial adenamatous polyposis (AFAP) can occur either by a mutation at the extreme ends of the adenomatous polyposis coli gene or by biallelic mutations in the mutY homologue (MYH) gene.

Review
Vasen et al., Leiden, Netherlands. In Crit Rev Oncol Hematol, 2007
Attenuated FAP (AFAP, <100 colorectal adenomas) is correlated with mutations before codon 157, after codon 1595 and in the alternatively spliced region of exon 9. Severe polyposis (>1000 adenomas) is found in patients with mutations between codons 1250 and 1464.

Review
Gimona et al., Salzburg, Austria. In Eur J Cell Biol, 2006
The molecular basis for this local inhibition of contractility includes the clustering of cortactin during podosome formation (which precedes the rapid, local dispersion of myosin, tropomyosin and h1 calponin), and the specific recruitment of 110-kDa actin filament-associated protein (AFAP-110) and 190-kDa Rho-specific GTPase-activating protein (p190RhoGAP) to the microdomains.
