|Function||Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs|
This gene encodes one of six different actin proteins. Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in cell motility, structure, and integrity. This actin is a major constituent of the contractile apparatus and one of the two nonmuscle cytoskeletal actins.
