Protein diaphanous homolog 1 (DIAPH1)

Actin nucleation and elongation factor required for the assembly of F-actin structures, such as actin cables and stress fibers (By similarity). Binds to the barbed end of the actin filament and slows down actin polymerization and depolymerization (By similarity).

Required for cytokinesis, and transcriptional activation of the serum response factor (By similarity). DFR proteins bunch Rho and Src tyrosine kinase during signaling and the regulation of actin dynamics (By similarity).
