(= plastin) Actin-binding protein (68 kD) from the core of epithelial brush-border microvilli. Contains the EF-hand motif.
Fimbrin also known as is plastin 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PLS1 gene. Fimbrin is an actin cross-linking protein important in the formation of filopodia. == Structure == Fimbrin belongs to the calponin homology (CH) domain superfamily of actin cross-linking proteins.
