DESCRIPTION
Also known as SIPA_SALTY, sipA, sspA. Actin-binding protein that interferes with host cell actin cytoskeleton. It stimulates actin polymerization and counteracts F-actin destabilizing proteins. Potentiates SipC activity; both are required for an efficient bacterial internalization. In vitro, forms a complex with host cell protein T-plastin increasing actin bundling. It inhibits ADF/cofilin-directed depolymerization both by preventing binding of ADF and cofilin and by displacing them from F-actin. Also protects F-actin from gelsolin-directed severing and reanneals gelsolin-severed F-actin fragments.
