WAC WW domain containing adaptor with coiled-coil

Gene ID: 51322, updated on 3-Oct-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: Wwp4; DESSH; BM-016; PRO1741


The protein encoded by this gene contains a WW domain, which is a protein module found in a wide range of signaling proteins. This domain mediates protein-protein interactions and binds proteins containing short linear peptide motifs that are proline-rich or contain at least one proline. This gene product shares 94% sequence identity with the WAC protein in mouse, however, its exact function is not known. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
