BackgroundThe Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a disorder that results from a monogenic defect that has been mapped to the short arm of the X chromosome. WAS is characterized by thrombocytopenia, eczema, defects in cell-mediated and humoral immunity and a propensity for lymphoproliferative disease. The gene that is mutated in the syndrome encodes a proline-rich protein of unknown function designated WAS protein (WASP). A clue to WASP function came from the observation that T cells from affected males had an irregular cellular morphology and a disarrayed cytoskeleton suggesting the involvement of WASP in cytoskeletal organization. Close examination of the WASP sequence revealed a putative Cdc42/Rac interacting domain, homologous with those found in PAK65 and ACK. Subsequent investigation has shown WASP to be a true downstream effector of Cdc42.(EM1706-58)
