TWF1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 277 amino acids (1-252 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 31.5kDa. TWF1 is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Twinfilin (TWF1) is a ubiquitous actin-monomer-binding protein which is composed of two ADF-homology domains. Twinfilin forms a 1:1 complex with ADP-actin-monomers, prevents nucleotide exchange on actin monomers and blocks assembly of the monomer into filaments. TWF1 is composed of 2 ADF/cofilin-like (ADF-H) domains joined by a short linker region and followed by a C-terminal tail of approximately 20 residues. The 2 ADF-H domains are approximately 20% homologous to ADF/cofilin and to each other. TWF1 protein may be an actin monomer-binding protein, and its localization to cortical G-actin-rich structures might be regulated by the small GTPase RAC1.
