Signaling pathways controlling the phosphorylation state of WAVE1, a regulator of actin polymerization.

The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP)-family verprolin homologous protein 1 (WAVE1) is a key regulator of Arp (actin-related protein) 2/3 complex-mediated actin polymerization. We have established previously that the state of phosphorylation of WAVE1 at three distinct residues controls its ability to regulate actin polymerization and spine morphology… CONTINUE READING
