    basic FUNCTION
  • plays a key role in limb morphogenesis
  • intracellular actin nucleator implicated in limb development (Zhou 2009)
  • may be playing a role in repression of BMP signaling (Zhou 2009)
  • affects limb development in two ways, first, it harbors a control element that regulates the transcription of the GREM1 and second, because it codes for the cytoplasmic protein FMN1, which plays a role in the repression of BMP signaling (Zhou 2009)
  • with DIAPH3 can help F-actin form highly elastic networks and mediate the formation of highly elastic F-actin networks as effectively and rapidly as alpha-actinin and filamin
