What is ACTB?
The ACTB gene serves the function to give instructions for synthesizing a protein called beta (β)-actin, part of the actin protein family. These proteins are of a most significant role for determining the shape of the cell and to control motility. Studies suggest that β-actin may also be involved in the process of relaying chemical signals within cells.
Where is ACTB found?
Proteins in the actin protein family are tidied up into a net of fibers named the actin cytoskeleton, which is responsible for the structural framework inside cells. Six types of actin exist- four of them are only in the muscle cells, where they participate in muscle contraction. The rest of the actin proteins, β-actin and gamma (γ)-actin, are found in cells all around the body.
What role does ACTB play in disease?
Several alterations in this gene have been proven to cause Baraitser-Winter syndrome(BWS), a rare condition mainly affecting the development of the brain, eyes, nose and other parts of the face, leading to intellectual instability and in some cases iris or retinal coloboma . The studied mutations transform single protein building blocks (amino acids) into β-actin. The most frequent mutation replaces the amino acid arginine with the amino acid histidine at Arg196His (also known as R196H position). The diagnosis of BWCFF syndrome is established in a proband with a compatible clinical phenotype and a heterozygous gain-of-function variant in either ACTB or ACTG1
