PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • a pleckstrin homology (PH) domain, required for podosome formation
  • a SH3 domain
  • GDP-GTP exchange with the DBL homology motif, interacting with N-terminal helices to exclude and prevent activation of Rho GTPases
  • HOMOLOGY
    intraspecies homolog to GDP-GTP exchange factor MLF2 and NGEF
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • Dbl family of guanine nucleotide exchange factor for Rho GTPases
  • CATEGORY regulatory , protooncogene
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION
    basic FUNCTION
  • may be playing an important role in proliferative breast disease
  • may be involved in the control of cytoskeletal organization
  • acts as an upstream regulator for the RHOA/ROCK-mediated cellular functions
  • is important not only for replication fork protection and checkpoint response, but also for replication
  • important factor in chemotaxis of a macrophage phage-like
  • is crucial for SRC-induced podosome formation
  • SRC SH3-binding protein, tyrosine-phosphorylated by SRC and bound to SRC to positively regulate its activity
  • acts as a proto-oncogene in human lung adenocarcinoma cell tumorigenesis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS

    small molecule
    protein
  • interacting with MCM2, MCM3, MCM4, MCM5, MCM6, MCM7 (Numata 2010)
  • can strongly activate RHOA and RHOB and weakly RHOC and RHOG, but not RAC1, RHOQ, RHOD
  • cell & other
