GeneID: 413


Common Name: SVIL Type: Gene
Chromosome: 10 (NC_000010.11) Locus: NG_033998.1 (SVIL)
HUGO Symbol: SVIL Full Name: supervillin
Exons: 36 Introns: 35

The SVIL gene encodes supervillin, which belongs to the villin/gelsolin superfamily of actin-binding proteins involved in many cellular processes. Supervillin is tightly associated with both actin filaments and plasma membranes, suggesting that it forms a link between the actin cytoskeleton and the membrane. Genetic variance in RAD51B associated with F-cell levels in sickle cell anaemia.
