A family of actin-crosslinking proteins share a conserved 125 residue sequence that lies within a 250 residue actin-binding domain. This domain is combined with spacer segments consisting of a variable number of repeated alpha-helical or beta-sheet motifs and other functional domains, which generate proteins that differ in their ability to form actin… CONTINUE READING
