Ena/VASP proteins are actin-associated proteins involved in a range of processes dependent on cytoskeleton remodeling and cell polarity such as axon guidance and lamellipodial and filopodial dynamics in migrating cells. EVL enhances actin nucleation and polymerization.
Highest expression in thymus and spleen (at protein level). Low levels in placenta, ovary, testis, fat and lung (at protein level). Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are expressed in cortical neurons and glial cells.
