GMFG (glia maturation factor-γ), is a highly conserved brain-specific protein that belongs to the GMF subfamily of the larger Actin-binding protein ADF family. GMFG is preferentially expressed in blood vessel cells and immune cells and its ectopic expression enhances cellular functions such as tube-formation and migration in vitro. GMFG mediates neutrophil and T-lymphocyte migration via regulation of actin cytoskeletal reorganization. GMFG also acts as an intracellular regulator of stress-activated signal transduction by demonstrating activation of p38 MAP kinase and transcription factor NF-kB in astrocytes.
