DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Putative WAS protein family homolog 4; AltName: Full=Protein FAM39CP;
FUNCTION: Acts as a nucleation-promoting factor at the surface of endosomes, where it recruits and activates the Arp2/3 complex to induce actin polymerization, playing a key role in the fission of tubules that serve as transport intermediates during endosome sorting (By similarity).
SUBUNIT: Component of the WASH complex, composed of F-actin- capping protein subunit alpha (CAPZA1, CAPZA2 or CAPZA3), F-actin- capping protein subunit beta (CAPZB), WASH (WASH1, WASH2P, WASH3P, WASH4P or WASH6P), FAM21 (FAM21A, FAM21B or FAM21C), KIAA1033, KIAA0196 and CCDC53. Interacts (via WHD1 region) with FAM21C; the interaction is direct (By similarity).
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Early endosome membrane (By similarity). Recycling endosome membrane (By similarity). Note=Localization to the endodome membrane is mediated via its interaction with FAM21 (By similarity).
MISCELLANEOUS: WASH genes duplicated to multiple chromosomal ends during primate evolution, with highest copy number reached in humans, whose WASH repertoires probably vary extensively among individuals (PubMed:18159949). It is therefore difficult to determine which gene is functional or not. The telomeric region of chromosome 9p is paralogous to the pericentromeric regions of chromosome 9 as well as to 2q. Paralogous regions contain 7 transcriptional units. Duplicated WASH genes are also present in the Xq/Yq pseudoautosomal region, as well as on chromosome 1 and 15. The chromosome 16 copy seems to be a pseudogene.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the WASH1 family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 WH2 domain.
CAUTION: Could be the product of a pseudogene.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on A8MWX3
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
