LRRC16 Cell membrane-cytoskeleton-associated protein that plays a role in the regulation of actin polymerization at the barbed end of actin filaments. Prevents F-actin heterodimeric capping protein (CP) activity at the leading edges of migrating cells, and hence generates uncapped barbed ends and enhances actin polymerization, however, seems unable to nucleate filaments. Plays a role in lamellipodial protrusion formations and cell migration. Belongs to the CARMIL family. Expressed in lung, placenta, small intestine, liver, thymus, colon, skeletal muscle, heart and brain. Higher expression in kidney. 4 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
