Official Full Name
ARP1 actin-related protein 1 homolog A, centractin alpha (yeast)
This gene encodes a 42.6 kD subunit of dynactin, a macromolecular complex consisting of 10-11 subunits ranging in size;from 22 to 150 kD. Dynactin binds to both microtubules and cytoplasmic dynein. It is involved in a diverse array of;cellular functions, including ER-to-Golgi transport, the centripetal movement of lysosomes and endosomes, spindle;formation, chromosome movement, nuclear positioning, and axonogenesis. This subunit is present in 8-13 copies per;dynactin molecule, and is the most abundant molecule in the dynactin complex. It is an actin-related protein, and is;approximately 60% identical at the amino acid level to conventional actin.
