Ankyrins are membrane adaptor molecules that play important roles in the control of cytoskeleton formation by regulating actin polymerization. Like other members of the KANK family, KANK3 (KN motif and ankyrin repeat domain-containing protein 3), is thought to play a role in the formation of actin stress fibers. In zebrafish, the homolog of KANK3 interacts with the adaptor protein Numb, a protein implicated in multiple basic cellular processes, and is essential for epidermal integrity and neurulation, suggesting that KANK3 may play a similar role in higher organisms.
