GeneCards Summary for DENND2A Gene

DENND2A (DENN/MADD Domain Containing 2A) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include Rab guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DENND2C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DENND2A Gene

  • Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which may activate RAB9A and RAB9B. Promotes the exchange of GDP to GTP, converting inactive GDP-bound Rab proteins into their active GTP-bound form. May play a role in late endosomes back to trans-Golgi network/TGN transport.
