Microtubule-actin cross-linking factor 1 - Q9QXZ0 (MACF1_MOUSE)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Isoform 2: F-actin-binding protein which plays a role in cross-linking actin to other cytoskeletal proteins and also binds to microtubules (PubMed:16815997, PubMed:18854161, PubMed:21295697). Plays an important role in ERBB2-dependent stabilization of microtubules at the cell cortex (By similarity). Acts as a positive regulator of Wnt receptor signaling pathway and is involved in the translocation of AXIN1 and its associated complex (composed of APC, CTNNB1 and GSK3B) from the cytoplasm to the cell membrane (PubMed:16815997). Has actin-regulated ATPase activity and is essential for controlling focal adhesions (FAs) assembly and dynamics (PubMed:18854161). Interaction with CAMSAP3 at the minus ends of non-centrosomal microtubules tethers microtubules minus-ends to actin filaments, regulating focal adhesion size and cell migration (By similarity). May play role in delivery of transport vesicles containing GPI-linked proteins from the trans-Golgi network through its interaction with GOLGA4 (By similarity). Plays a key role in wound healing and epidermal cell migration (PubMed:21295697). Required for efficient upward migration of bulge cells in response to wounding and this function is primarily rooted in its ability to coordinate microtubule dynamics and polarize hair follicle stem cells (PubMed:21295697).

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
