Intersectin-1 - Q15811 (ITSN1_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Adapter protein that provides a link between the endocytic membrane traffic and the actin assembly machinery (PubMed:11584276, PubMed:29887380). Acts as guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for CDC42, and thereby stimulates actin nucleation mediated by WASL and the ARP2/3 complex (PubMed:11584276). Plays a role in the assembly and maturation of clathrin-coated vesicles (By similarity). Recruits FCHSD2 to clathrin-coated pits (PubMed:29887380). Involved in endocytosis of activated EGFR, and probably also other growth factor receptors (By similarity). Involved in endocytosis of integrin beta-1 (ITGB1) and transferrin receptor (TFR); internalization of ITGB1 as DAB2-dependent cargo but not TFR may involve association with DAB2 (PubMed:22648170). Promotes ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of EGFR, and thereby contributes to the down-regulation of EGFR-dependent signaling pathways. In chromaffin cells, required for normal exocytosis of catecholamines. Required for rapid replenishment of release-ready synaptic vesicles at presynaptic active zones (By similarity). Inhibits ARHGAP31 activity toward RAC1 (PubMed:11744688). UniProt

(Microbial infection) Interacts with vaccinia virus protein A36 (PubMed:27670116). UniProt
In an autoinhibited form the SH3 domain 5 may bind intramolecularly to the DH domain, thus blocking the CDC42-binding site. 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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries 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.
