Abstract [en]

Verprolin is an actin-binding protein first identified in budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast verprolin is needed for actin polymerisation during polarised growth and during endocytosis. In vertebrate cells, three genes encoding Verprolin orthologues have been identified: WIP, CR16 and WIRE/WICH. The mammalian verprolins have been implicated in the regulation of actin dynamics either by binding directly to actin, by binding the WASP family of proteins or by binding to other actin regulating proteins. This review article will bring up to discussion the current understanding of the mechanisms underlying verprolin-dependent mobilisation of the actin filament system.
