DBN1 Actin cytoskeleton-organizing protein that plays a role in the formation of cell projections. Required for actin polymerization at immunological synapses (IS) and for the recruitment of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 to IS. Plays a role in dendritic spine morphogenesis and organization, including the localization of the dopamine receptor DRD1 to the dendritic spines. Involved in memory-related synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus. Expressed in the brain, with expression in the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus, stratum pyramidale, and stratum radiatum of the hippocampus (at protein level) (PubMed:8838578). Also expressed in the terminal varicosities distributed along dendritic trees of pyramidal cells in CA4 and CA3 of the hippocampus (at protein level) (PubMed:8838578). Expressed in pyramidal cells in CA2, CA1 and the subiculum of the hippocampus (at protein level) (PubMed:8838578). Expressed in peripheral blood lymphocytes, including T-cells (at protein level) (PubMed:20215400). Expressed in the brain (PubMed:8216329, Ref.2). Expressed in the heart, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, skin fibroblasts, gingival fibroblasts and bone-derived cells (Ref.2). 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
