    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,cytoplasm,cytoskeleton
    basic FUNCTION
  • acts as an actin nucleation factor, remains associated with the slow-growing pointed end of the new filament
  • SPIRE1, SPIRE2, and COBL can synergize with other actin regulators
  • involved in vesicle transport processes providing a new link between actin organization and intracellular transport
  • mediated actin-microtubule interactions and has important roles in membrane transport (Ducka 2010)
  • SPIRE1 and SPIRE2 cooperate with Formin-2 (FMN2) to nucleate actin filaments
  • COBL and SPIRE1, SPIRE2 display different functions by selecting different sets of the multifunctional properties of WH2 domains
