Definition

A superfamily of gelsolin-like proteins that has a conserved modular motif. Gelsolin is the founding member; other members include villin, scinderin, adseverin, supervillin, CapG, and flightless I. With the exception of flightless I, all are shown to be Ca2+-activated actin severing and/or binding proteins. Some of these proteins have also been implicated in transcriptional regulation.
