motifs/domains
  • adjacent RhoGEF and PH domains
  • a second carboxy-terminal PH domain
  • a distinctive FYVE domain, conserved domain for endosomal localization
  • C-terminal pleckstrin homology domain mediates recruitment to membrane ruffles
  • HOMOLOGY
    intraspecies homolog to FGD1
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • small subfamily of predicted RhoGEFs
  • CATEGORY regulatory , signaling

    text complex intracellular localization, with concentrations found in membrane ruffles and early endosomes, sole member of the characterized Fgd family that can localize to early endocytic vesicles
    basic FUNCTION
  • may be playing a role in embryonic development
  • playing a role in leukocyte signaling and vesicle trafficking in cells specialized to present antigen in the immune system
  • may have a role in the regulation of cell polarization and migration, since membrane ruffles often form at the leading edge of migrating cells
