WAS protein family, member 1

The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP)-family, plays a critical role downstream of Rac, a Rho-family small GTPase, in regulating the actin cytoskeleton required for membrane ruffling. It has been shown to associate with an actin nucleation core Arp2/3 complex while enhancing actin polymerization in vitro. Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a disease of the immune system, likely due to defects in regulation of actin cytoskeleton. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Cytoplasmic FMRP interacting protein 1 (CYFIP1), also known as specifically RAC1 activated protein 1 (Sra1), plays a dual role: together with fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP) and eIF4E it forms a complex that inhibits mRNA translation, while together with WAVE1, NCKAP1, ABI2, and HSPC300 it forms the WAVE regulatory complex (WRC) that upon RAC1 activation initiates actin polymerization.
