Abstract

The gene responsible for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, a disease affecting platelets and lymphocytes, has been cloned and its protein product (WASp) found to interact with the GTPase Cdc42. WASp seems to provide a link between Cdc42 and the actin cytoskeleton, perhaps explaining the cellular defects underlying the disease.
