Gene: Was (Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome) Mus musculus
Symbol: Was
Name: Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome
RGD ID: 1558289
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including actin filament polymerization; cellular response to interferon-gamma; and endosomal transport. Localizes to cell-cell junction; phagocytic vesicle; and vesicle membrane. Is expressed in brain; heart; liver; and spleen. Used to study IgA glomerulonephritis and Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and severe congenital neutropenia. Orthologous to human WAS (WASP actin nucleation promoting factor); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; arsenite(3-).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: U42471; W; Wasp; Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome homolog; Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome homolog (human); wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein homolog
