CDC42EP4 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, when overexpressed in fibroblasts. Belongs to the BORG/CEP family. Not detected in any of the adult tissues tested. May be expressed only in fetal or embryonic tissues. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
