PROTEIN
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • tandem related repeats of approximatly 14 amino acods, a region with clusters of proline and serine
  • a C terminal region with three imperfect 18 amino acids repeats homolog to the MT binding domain of MAP2 and MAPT
  • four TAU/MAP repeats
  • HOMOLOGY
    interspecies ortholog to Map4, Rattus norvegicus
    ortholog to Mtap4, Mus musculus
    Homologene
    FAMILY MAP (mitogen activated protein) kinase family

    basic FUNCTION
  • promoting microtubule assembly, and counteracting destabilization of interphase microtubule catastrophe promotion
  • involved in the regulation of microtubule stability
  • involved in microtubule network stability and microtubule network density by its phosphorylation
  • CLASP1 is required to correctly capture astral microtubules, whereas MAP4 prevents engagement of excess dynein motors, thereby protecting the system from force imbalance
  • MAP4 and the microtubule rescue factor CLASP1 are essential for maintaining spindle position and the correct cell-division axis in human cells
  • unexpected role of TRAF3IP1 as a negative regulator of microtubule stability via MAP4 (microtubule-associated protein 4)

    protein
  • Cyclin B
  • physically interacts with dynein-dynactin and inhibits dynein-mediated microtubule sliding
  • MAP4, which is a binding partner of SEPT2, controls the accessibility of septins to microtubules
