Rho GTPase activating protein 5 negatively regulates RHO GTPases, a family which may mediate cytoskeleton changes by stimulating the hydrolysis of bound GTP. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ARHGAP5 Gene
ARHGAP5 (Rho GTPase Activating Protein 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by Rho GTPases and G-protein signaling_Cross-talk between Ras-family GTPases. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activator activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARHGAP9.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARHGAP5 Gene
GTPase-activating protein for Rho family members. May play a role in the reduction of the p21rasGTPase-activating potential of RASA1/p120GAP.
