(= oncoprotein 18; Op18) Ubiquitous coiled-coil cytosolic phosphoprotein (19 kD) that interacts with tubulin heterodimers and increases the rate of rapid (â€˜catastrophic`) disassembly of microtubules. Overexpressed in some tumours and probably regulated by phosphorylation.
Stathmin 1/oncoprotein 18, also known as STMN1, is a highly conserved 17 kDa protein. Its function as an important regulatory protein of microtubule dynamics has been well-characterized. Eukaryotic microtubules are one of three major components of the cell’s cytoskeleton. They are highly dynamic structures that continuously alternate between ass...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stathmin
