AVIL Ca(2+)-regulated actin-binding protein. May have a unique function in the morphogenesis of neuronal cells which form ganglia. Required for SREC1-mediated regulation of neurite-like outgrowth. Plays a role in regenerative sensory axon outgrowth and remodeling processes after peripheral injury in neonates. Involved in the formation of long fine actin-containing filopodia-like structures in fibroblast. Plays a role in ciliogenesis. Belongs to the villin/gelsolin family. Most highly expressed in the small intestine and colonic lining. Weaker expression also detected in the thymus, prostate, testes and uterus. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
