Description…

TMSB4X, or thymosin β4, belongs to the thymosin beta family. It is an actin sequestering protein which plays an important role in the regulation of actin polymerization. TMSB4X binds to and sequesters actin monomers (G actin) and therefore inhibits actin polymerization. It is also involved in cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation. This gene escapes X inactivation and has a homolog on chromosome Y.
