Homodimer (Probable) (PubMed:27601635). Interacts (via SH3 domain 1) with WASp (PubMed:14980202, PubMed:18701694, PubMed:27601635). Interacts (via SH3 domain 1) with shi/dynamin (PubMed:18701694, PubMed:18498733). Interacts (via SH3 domain 2) with Dap160 (PubMed:18701694, PubMed:18498733, PubMed:26686642). Interacts (via F-BAR domain) with SH3PX1 (PubMed:26567222). Interacts (via SH3 domain 2) with Snx16 (PubMed:21464232). Identified in a complex with Syn and Syt1 (PubMed:29568072).
In the autoinhibited state, the SH3 domains are bound to the concave surface of the F-BAR domain and prevent promiscuous membrane binding.
Upon heterologous expression, the isolated F-BAR domain is localized at the cell membrane, and causes the formation of cellular protrusions (PubMed:23761074, PubMed:26686642). Contrary to F-BAR domains from other proteins, causes membrane flattening on giant unilamellar vesicles (in vitro) (PubMed:23761074, PubMed:26686642). Binds to membranes enriched in phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylinositides, such as phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate, phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PubMed:23761074, PubMed:26686642, PubMed:27601635).

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.

dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene tested in RNAi screen for effects on Kc167 and S2R+ cell morphology.
Shows particularly robust cycling of transcription in adult heads, as assessed by expression analysis using high density oligonucleotide arrays with probe generated during three 12-point time course experiments over the course of 6 days.
The gene is named "nervous wreck" after the behaviour of mutant flies; while their movement and coordination appear normal at room temperature, at 38[o]C they readily lose coordination and undergo seizures followed by paralysis.
