Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
capping actin protein of muscle Z-line subunit alpha 1

capz , caz1 , cappa1 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
F-actin capping protein subunit

Protein Function :
F-actin-capping proteins bind in a Ca(2+)-independent manner to the fast growing ends of actin filaments (barbed end) thereby blocking the exchange of subunits at these ends. Unlike other capping prote...[+]
