||Recombinant human CAPG was expressed in E.coli and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques.
||Macrophage-capping protein, also known as CAPG, belongs to the gelsolin/villin family of actin-regulatory proteins. CAPG is a calcium-sensitive DNA-binding protein that plays a role in macrophage function. It is expressed in macrophages and macrophage-like cells and can localize both to the nucleus and the cytoplasm. This protein reversibly blocks the barbed ends of F-actin filaments in a Ca2+ and phosphoinositide-regulated manner, but does not sever preformed actin filaments.
