WIPF1 a cytoskeleton-associated protein that interacts with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) in resting cells. Plays an important role in the organization of the actin cytoskeleton. Phosphorylation by PKC-theta following T cell receptor signaling disengages it from WASP, releasing WASP from WIP inhibition. Binds to a region of WASP that is frequently mutated in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
