Alpha actinins belong to the spectrin gene superfamily which represents a diverse group of cytoskeletal proteins including the alpha and beta spectrins and dystrophins. Alpha actinin is an actin-binding protein with multiple roles in different cell types. In nonmuscle cells the cytoskeletal isoform is found along microfilament bundles and adherens-type junctions where it is involved in binding actin to the membrane. In contrast skeletal cardiac and smooth muscle isoforms are localized to the Z-disc and analogous dense bodies where they help anchor the myofibrillar actin filaments. This gene encodes a nonmuscle alpha actinin isoform which is concentrated in the cytoplasm and thought to be involved in metastatic processes. Mutations in this gene have been associated with focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
