Summaries for ABR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ABR Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that is similar to the protein encoded by the breakpoint cluster region gene located on chromosome 22. The protein encoded by this gene contains a GTPase-activating protein domain, a domain found in members of the Rho family of GTP-binding proteins. Functional studies in mice determined that this protein plays a role in vestibular morphogenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been reported for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for ABR Gene

ABR (Active BCR-Related) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ABR include Retroperitoneal Neuroblastoma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and G-protein signaling_Regulation of CDC42 activity. GO annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and Rho guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is BCR.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ABR Gene

  • GTPase-activating protein for RAC and CDC42. Promotes the exchange of RAC or CDC42-bound GDP by GTP, thereby activating them.
