Slingshot homolog 3
The ADF (actin-depolymerizing factor)/cofilin family (see MIM 601442) is composed of stimulus-responsive mediators of actin dynamics. ADF/cofilin proteins are inactivated by kinases such as LIM domain kinase-1 (LIMK1; MIM 601329). The SSH family appears to play a role in actin dynamics by reactivating ADF/cofilin proteins in vivo (Niwa et al., 2002 [PubMed 11832213]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008] (from

METHODS AND RESULTS: Scratch wound and modified Boyden chamber assays were used to assess VSMC migration following downregulation of the expression of cofilin and each SSH phosphatase isoform (SSH1, SSH2, and SSH3) by small interfering RNA (siRNA), respectively.

Expression of phosphatase-dead versions of SSH proteins, SSH1, SSH2 & SSH3 results in phosphorylation/inactivation of cofilin, changes in cytoskeleton organization, loss of cell polarity, and assembly of aberrant arrays of laminin-332 in keratinocytes.
