SH3 and multiple ankyrin repeat domains protein 3, or shank 3 (also known as proline-rich synapse-associated protein 2 (ProSAP2)) is a member of the shank family. Shank 3 binding domains include a SH3 domain, a proline rich domain, a PDZ domain and ankyrin repeat domains. Shank 3 is found in many tissues including heart and spleen, but is most abundantly expressed in brain at the post synaptic density. Shank 3 acts as a scaffold protein anchoring and connecting membrane bound receptors, ion channels and other proteins to the cytoskeleton in neurons to enable cell signaling. In this manner, Shank 3 may play a role in synapse formation and dendritic spine maturation. Mutations in the Shank 3 gene have been associated with neuropsychiatric diseases, including autism spectrm disorder.
