The Cdc42 Effector IRSp53 Generates Filopodia by Coupling Membrane Protrusion with Actin Dynamics*
TLDR
It is proposed that IRSp53 generates filopodia by coupling membrane protrusion through its I-BAR domain with actin dynamics through SH3 domain binding partners, including N-WASP and Mena.
mDia1 and WAVE2 Proteins Interact Directly with IRSp53 in Filopodia and Are Involved in Filopodium Formation
TLDR
Findings suggest that mDia1 and WAVE2 are important Src homology 3 domain partners of IRSp53 in forming filopodia, which are dynamic actin-rich cell surface protrusions involved in cell migration, axon guidance, and wound healing.
Regulation of IRSp53-Dependent Filopodial Dynamics by Antagonism between 14-3-3 Binding and SH3-Mediated Localization
TLDR
This work provides an alternative model of how IRSp53 is recruited (and released) to carry out its functions at lamellipodia and filopodia, and does not conform to current views that the inverse-BAR domain or Cdc42 controlsIRSp53 localization.
Mechanism of IRSp53 inhibition and combinatorial activation by Cdc42 and downstream effectors
TLDR
Using a fluorescence reporter assay, it is shown that human IRSp53 adopts a closed inactive conformation that opens synergistically with the binding of human Cdc42 to the CRIB–PR and effector proteins, such as the tumor-promoting factor Eps8, to the SH3 domain.
LIN7 regulates the filopodium- and neurite-promoting activity of IRSp53
TLDR
Investigation of the role of the small scaffold protein LIN7 finds that formation of actin-filled protrusions in neuronal NSC34 cells and neurites in neuroblastoma N2A cells depends on motifs mediating the LIN7:IRSp53 association, and indicates that LIN7 is a novel regulator of IRSp53, and that the association of these proteins is required to promote the formation ofActin-dependent filopodia and neurite.
IRSp53 Mediates Podosome Formation via VASP in NIH-Src Cells
TLDR
It is found that the knockdown of IRSp53 by RNAi attenuates podosome formation and migration in Src-transformed NIH3T3 (NIH-Src) cells, and this data highlight the role ofIRSp53 as a linker of small GTPases to VASP for podosomes formation.
Dynamin1 Is a Novel Target for IRSp53 Protein and Works with Mammalian Enabled (Mena) Protein and Eps8 to Regulate Filopodial Dynamics*
TLDR
Dynin1 (Dyn1), the large guanosine triphosphatase, is an interacting partner of IRSp53 through pulldown and Förster resonance energy transfer analysis, and its role in filopodial formation is explored.
CDC42 switches IRSp53 from inhibition of actin growth to elongation by clustering of VASP
TLDR
It is shown that the membrane deforming and curvature sensing IRSp53 protein slows down actin filament barbed end growth, which results in spatial restriction of VASP filament elongation for initiation of filopodia during cell migration, invasion, and tissue repair.
I-BAR domains, IRSp53 and filopodium formation.
Structural basis of filopodia formation induced by the IRSp53/MIM homology domain of human IRSp53
TLDR
An expanded view of IRSp53 as an actin regulator that integrates scaffolding and effector functions is promoted, demonstrating that IMD‐mediated actin bundling is required for IRSp 53‐induced filopodia formation.

IRSp53 is an essential intermediate between Rac and WAVE in the regulation of membrane ruffling
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IRSp53, a substrate for insulin receptor with unknown function, is the ‘missing link’ between Rac and WAVE, and is essential for Rac to induce membrane ruffling, which stimulates actin polymerization mediated by the Arp2/3 complex.
WIP regulates N-WASP-mediated actin polymerization and filopodium formation
TLDR
It is shown that WASP-interacting protein (WIP) interacts directly with N-WASP and actin, which is consistent with their role in actin-tail formation in cells infected with vaccinia virus or Shigella.
Cdc42hs Facilitates Cytoskeletal Reorganization and Neurite Outgrowth by Localizing the 58-Kd Insulin Receptor Substrate to Filamentous Actin
TLDR
Results suggest that Cdc42Hs facilitates cytoskeletal reorganization and neurite outgrowth by localizing protein complexes via adaptor proteins such as IRS-58 to F-actin.
The Ras-related protein Cdc42Hs and bradykinin promote formation of peripheral actin microspikes and filopodia in Swiss 3T3 fibroblasts
TLDR
It is shown that microinjection of the related human Cdc42Hs into Swiss 3T3 fibroblasts induced the formation of peripheral actin microspikes, determined by staining with phalloidin, and that Cdc 42Hs plays an important role in determining mammalian cell morphology.
cAMP-dependent Protein Kinase Phosphorylation of EVL, a Mena/VASP Relative, Regulates Its Interaction with Actin and SH3 Domains*
TLDR
The data suggest that the function of EVL could be modulated in a complex manner by its interactions with multiple ligands and through phosphorylation by cyclic nucleotide dependent kinases.
Induction of filopodium formation by a WASP-related actin-depolymerizing protein N-WASP
TLDR
It is demonstrated that before it can induce filopodium formation, Cdc42 must bind a WASP-related protein, N-WASP, that is richest in neural tissues but is expressed ubiquitously.
Activation of G1 Progression, JNK Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase, and Actin Filament Assembly by the Exchange Factor FGD1*
TLDR
FGD1 triggers G1 cell cycle progression and filopodia formation in Swiss 3T3 fibroblasts as well as JNK mitogen-activated protein kinase activation in COS cell transfection assays and it is concluded that FGD1 can trigger G1 progression independently of actin polymerization or integrin adhesion complex assembly.
Recruitment of the Arp2/3 complex and Mena for the stimulation of actin polymerization in growth cones by nerve growth factor
TLDR
Results point to the early involvement of the Arp2/3 complex and the Ena/VASP family in growth factor‐stimulated actin polymerization that gives rise to protrusive structures at the growth cone.
