arc4, Actin-related protein 2/3 complex subunit 4
Also Known as
ARPC4_SCHPO, arc4, arp20
Functions as actin-binding component of the Arp2/3 complex which is involved in regulation of actin polymerization and together with an activating nucleation-promoting factor (NPF) mediates the formation of branched actin networks. Seems to contact the mother actin filament. Component of the Arp2/3 complex composed of arp2, act2, arc1/p41-ARC, arc2/p34-ARC, arc3/p21-ARC, arc4/p20-ARC and arc5/p16-ARC.
