WW domain binding protein 1
The globular WW domain, named for the conserved tryptophan residues in the protein motif present in various structural and regulatory proteins, is known to play a role in the mediation of protein-protein interactions. This gene encodes a ligand of the WW domain of the Yes kinase-associated protein. Readthrough transcription of the neighboring upstream gene, which encodes INO80 complex subunit B, into this gene generates a non-coding transcript. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011] (from

Two putative ligands of YAP, termed WBP-1 and WBP-2, have been found previously to contain several short peptide regions consisting of PPPPY residues (PY motif) that mediate binding to the WW domain of YAP.
