The protein encoded by GSN gene binds to the 'plus' ends of actin monomers and filaments to prevent monomer exchange. The encoded calcium-regulated protein functions in both assembly and disassembly of actin filaments. Defects in GSN are a cause of familial amyloidosis Finnish type (AMLY5). Multiple transcript variants encoding several different isoforms have been found for GSN (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).
