1. SPIN90/WISH interacts with PSD-95 and regulates dendritic spinogenesis via an N-WASP-independent mechanism.
Match Strength: 5.270
SPIN90/WISH (SH3 protein interacting with Nck, 90 kDa/Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) interacting SH3 protein) regulates actin polymerization through its interaction with various actin-regulating proteins. It is highly expressed in the brain, but its role in the nervous system is largely unknown. We report that it is expressed in dendritic spines where it associates with PSD-95. Its overexpression increased the number and length of dendritic filopodia/spines via an N-WASP-independent mechanism, and knock down of its expression with small interfering RNA reduced dendritic spine density. ...

2. A role for WASP Interacting Protein, WIP, in fibroblast adhesion, spreading and migration.
Match Strength: 5.065
The WASP (Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome Protein) Interacting Protein, WIP, regulates actin polymerization and the formation of actin-rich structures such as filopodia and lamellipodia, each of which is involved in cellular adhesion, spreading and migration. To define the role for WIP in these activities, we analysed cell adhesion and spreading as well as the redistribution of polymerised actin and paxillin that occurred when fibroblasts were plated onto different substrata. We compared the effect of WIP overexpression (gain of function) with that of WIP deficiency (loss of function) on these ... Read More »
