Official Full Name
actin, gamma 2, smooth muscle, enteric
Background
Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and in the maintenance of the;cytoskeleton. Three types of actins, alpha, beta and gamma, have been identified in vertebrates. Alpha actins are;found in muscle tissues and are a major constituent of the contractile apparatus. The beta and gamma actins co-exist;in most cell types as components of the cytoskeleton and as mediators of internal cell motility. This gene encodes;actin gamma 2; a smooth muscle actin found in enteric tissues. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript;variants encoding distinct isoforms. Based on similarity to peptide cleavage of related actins, the mature protein of;this gene is formed by removal of two N-terminal peptides.
