Scientific Background:VASP (vasodilator stimulated phosphoprotein) is a proline-rich protein substrate of cAMP- and cGMP-dependent protein kinases. Phosphorylation of VASP at Ser-157 causes a mobility shift in SDS gel electrophoresis from 46 to 50 kDa, which has been used as a convenient marker to monitor cyclic nucleotide-dependent protein kinase activity. VASP is the founding member of the Ena-VASP protein family, comprising the Drosophila protein Enabled (Ena), its mouse homologue Mena (mammalian Enabled), and mouse EVL (Ena-VASP-like protein). With these proteins VASP shares a conserved overall domain organization:
a) the conserved N-terminal Ena-VASP homology domain 1 (EVH1), which mediates binding to a proline-rich motif
b) a more divergent proline-rich central domain (which is responsible for profilin binding)
c) a conserved C-terminal EVH2 domain.

VASP is expressed in a variety of mammalian cell types and tissues. In cultured cells, VASP is associated with focal adhesions, cell-cell contacts, microfilaments, and highly dynamic membrane regions. From in vitro binding data VASP has been suggested to link profilin to zyxin, vinculin, and the Listeria spp. surface protein ActA, respectively. Functional evidence indicates that VASP is a crucial factor involved in the enhancement of actin filament formation and the actin-dependent motility of intracellular bacterial pathogens.
