Filamin-A - P21333 (FLNA_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Promotes orthogonal branching of actin filaments and links actin filaments to membrane glycoproteins. Anchors various transmembrane proteins to the actin cytoskeleton and serves as a scaffold for a wide range of cytoplasmic signaling proteins. Interaction with FLNB may allow neuroblast migration from the ventricular zone into the cortical plate. Tethers cell surface-localized furin, modulates its rate of internalization and directs its intracellular trafficking (By similarity). Involved in ciliogenesis. Plays a role in cell-cell contacts and adherens junctions during the development of blood vessels, heart and brain organs. Plays a role in platelets morphology through interaction with SYK that regulates ITAM- and ITAM-like-containing receptor signaling, resulting in by platelet cytoskeleton organization maintenance (By similarity). During the axon guidance process, required for growth cone collapse induced by SEMA3A-mediated stimulation of neurons (PubMed:25358863). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homodimer. Interacts with PDLIM2 (By similarity). Interacts with RFLNA and RFLNB (By similarity). Interacts with FCGR1A, FLNB, FURIN, HSPB7, INPPL1, KCND2, MYOT, MYOZ1, ARHGAP24, PSEN1, PSEN2 and ECSCR. Interacts also with various other binding partners in addition to filamentous actin. Interacts (via N-terminus) with MIS18BP1 (via N-terminus). Interacts (via N-terminus) with TAF1B. Interacts with TMEM67 (via C-terminus) and MKS1. Interacts (via actin-binding domain) with MICALL2 (via CH domain). Interacts (via filamin repeat 5) with SYK; docks SYK to the plasma membrane (PubMed:20713593). Interacts (via filamin repeats 19 and 21) with DRD3; increased PKA-mediated phosphorylation at Ser-2152. Interacts (via filamin repeat 21) with MAS1, AGTR1 and ADRA1D; increases PKA-mediated phosphorylation of FLNA at Ser-2152 (PubMed:26460884). Interacts (via filamin repeats 4, 9, 12, 17, 19, 21, and 23) with GP1BA (high affinity), ITGB7, ITGB2 and FBLIM1 (PubMed:19828450, PubMed:21524097, PubMed:25666618). Interacts with CEACAM1 (via cytoplasmic domain); inhibits cell migration and cell scattering by interfering with the interaction between FLNA and RALA (PubMed:16291724). Interacts with FOXC1 (PubMed:15684392). Interacts (via calponin-homology (CH) domain 1 and filamin repeat 24) with CRMP1; the interaction alters FLNA ternary structure and thus promotes FLNA dissociation from F-actin (PubMed:25358863). Interacts with DPYSL3/CRMP3 and DPYSL4/CRMP4 (PubMed:25358863). UniProt
Comprised of a NH2-terminal actin-binding domain, 24 immunoglobulin-like internally homologous repeats and two hinge regions. Repeat 24 and the second hinge domain are important for dimer formation. Filamin repeat 20 interacts with filamin repeat 21 masking the ligand binding site on filamin repeat 21, resulting in an autoinhibited conformation (PubMed:17690686). The autoinhibition can be relieved by ligands like ITGB7 or FBLIM1 (PubMed:21524097). Filamin repeats 19 and 21 can simultaneously engage ligands (PubMed:21524097). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
