Component of the WASH complex, a complex present at the surface of endosomes that recruits and activates the Arp2/3 complex to induce actin polymerization. The WASH complex plays a key role in the fission of tubules that serve as transport intermediates during endosome sorting. In the complex, it probably mediates the recruitment of the complex to endosome membranes. Plays a role in fluid-phase endocytosis, a process exploited by vaccinia intracellular mature virus (IMV) to enter cells. As a result, may facilitate the penetration of IMV into cells.
family with sequence similarity 21, member C; Vaccinia virus penetration factor; VPEF; WASH complex subunit 2C
