  • a N terminal tandem DH/PH (Dbl homology/pleckstrin homology) domain
  • PDZ (PSD95/disc large/ZO1) domain
  • two proline rich sequence
  • a regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) homology domain
    interspecies homolog to murine LSC oncogene
    FAMILY RGS-RhoGEF family
    CATEGORY signaling
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane,junction,adherens
  • translocated to the plasma membrane after stimulation
  • in the early phases of cell-cell contact, ARHGEF11 was located at primordial adherens junctions
  • basic FUNCTION
  • specific guanine nucleotide exchange factor for RhoA, not for RAC1 or CDC42
  • involved in neurite retraction through Rho dependent signaling
  • playing a role in SEMA4D-plexin-B1 mediating signal transduction
  • supposed to influence insulin signaling
  • involved in G protein signaling and is a pathway known to play a role in both insulin secretion and action
  • guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for RHOA, mediating RHOA-dependent responses and determines their spatial distribution
  • mediates RHOA-myosin light chain signaling pathways at cell-cell junctions, functioning in cooperation with TJP1, to regulate the paracellular barrier and the organization of the apical junctional complex and perijunctional actomyosin ring of epithelial cells
  • mediates TJP1-dependent junction assembly and barrier formation in mammary epithelial cells
  • generally regulates apical junctions and junction-associated actomyosin in various epithelial tissues
  • acts as a key determinant of mammalian metabolism and obesity-associated pathologies
  • is a specific guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEF) for RHOA, which is a critical regulator of actin cytoskeleton dynamics and organization of dendritic spines and inhibitor of spine maintenance
  • is likely to be associated with synaptic membranes and regulation of spine
    signaling signal transduction
    a component
  • PTK2B/ARHGEF11 couples RHOA activation to Ca(2+)
    small molecule
  • links PTK2B to RHOA
  • interacting with plexin B1(PLXNB1) through PDZ domain
  • with PTK2 and ROCK2, cooperate to regulate adhesion movement and trailing-edge retraction in fibroblasts
  • targeting ARHGEF11 to KLHL20 required ARHGEF11 phosphorylation by MAPK14 mitogen-activated protein kinase
  • associates with tight junctions (TJs) by binding to TJP1, in polarized epithelial cells
  • cell & other
    corresponding disease(s)
    Susceptibility to type 2 diabetes (T2D) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT)
    Variant & Polymorphism SNP
  • R1467H assoociated with increased risk of T2D or T2D/IGT
  • SNP rs6427340 (intron 2), in which the less common allele was the risk allele for type 2 diabetes
  • Candidate gene
