CAPZB F-actin-capping proteins bind in a Ca(2+)-independent manner to the fast growing ends of actin filaments (barbed end) thereby blocking the exchange of subunits at these ends. Unlike other capping proteins (such as gelsolin and severin), these proteins do not sever actin filaments. Plays a role in the regulation of cell morphology and cytoskeletal organization. Belongs to the F-actin-capping protein beta subunit family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
