Gene: Was (WASP actin nucleation promoting factor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Was
Name: WASP actin nucleation promoting factor
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including SH3 domain binding activity; actin filament binding activity; and enzyme binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including actin cytoskeleton organization; positive regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process; and regulation of actin filament organization. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; phagocytic vesicle; and site of double-strand break. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and severe congenital neutropenia. Orthologous to human WAS (WASP actin nucleation promoting factor); PARTICIPATES IN chemokine mediated signaling pathway; Fc gamma receptor mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH acetamide; bisphenol A; (Z)-3-butylidenephthalide (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: WASP; Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome; Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome homolog; Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome homolog (human); Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein
