CDC42EP3 Probably involved in the organization of the actin cytoskeleton. May act downstream of CDC42 to induce actin filament assembly leading to cell shape changes. Induces pseudopodia formation in fibroblasts. Belongs to the BORG/CEP family. Highly expressed in the heart and weakly in the brain. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
