Actin-related proteins share significant homology with conventional actins and are classified into subfamilies based on the similarity of their sequences and functions. The Arp4 subfamily of Arps is localized in the nucleus, and a mammalian isoform, ArpNbeta (also known as BAF53), is a component of the chromatin remodeling and histone acetyltransferase complexes. Another isoform identified in humans, ArpNalpha has scarcely been characterized yet. We identified mouse ArpNalpha, and showed that… CONTINUE READING
