Summaries for DOCK1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DOCK1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the dedicator of cytokinesis protein family. Dedicator of cytokinesis proteins act as guanine nucleotide exchange factors for small Rho family G proteins. The encoded protein regulates the small GTPase Rac, thereby influencing several biological processes, including phagocytosis and cell migration. Overexpression of this gene has also been associated with certain cancers. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]

GeneCards Summary for DOCK1 Gene

DOCK1 (Dedicator Of Cytokinesis 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Regulation of actin cytoskeleton and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DOCK5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DOCK1 Gene

  • Involved in cytoskeletal rearrangements required for phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and cell motility. Functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which activates Rac Rho small GTPases by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. Its GEF activity may be enhanced by ELMO1.
