Detachment of WASP/WAVE (R-HSA-2197690) [Homo sapiens]


After incorporation at the branch, the actin bound to VCA domain of WASP/WAVE undergoes ATP hydrolysis and this destabilizes its interaction with WASP/WAVE. This dissociates the branched junction from the membrane-bound WASP/WAVE (Kovar 2006).
