Phosphorylation at Ser-39 inhibits actin-binding. Phosphorylation is required for the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton in response to NGF.
Actin-binding protein that contains 2 major actin binding sites. Organizes filamentous actin into parallel bundles. Plays a role in the organization of actin filament bundles and the formation of microspikes, membrane ruffles, and stress fibers. Important for the formation of a diverse set of cell protrusions, such as filopodia, and for cell motility and migration. Mediates reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and axon growth cone collapse in response to NGF. Cell adhesion to extracellular matrix is an important physiological stimulus for organization of the Actin-based cytoskeleton. Adhesion to the matrix glycoprotein Thrombospondin 1 triggers the sustained formation of F-Actin microspikes that contain the Actin-bundling protein Fascin. These structures are also implicated in cell migration, which may be an important function of Thrombospondin 1 in tissue remodelling and wound repair. Fascin bundles Actin microfilaments within dynamic cellular structures such as microspikes, stress fibers and membrane ruffles. Fascin could serve as a prognostic factor for abnormal ovarian epithelial pathology and could be a novel target for the treatment of ovarian cancer. Fascin, an Actin-bundling protein, identifies dendritic cells in the blood and in tissues.
