Q7Z6J4

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

FGD2_HUMAN :
  • Q7Z6J4
Domain:
  • The FYVE-type zinc-finger is necessary for early endosome localization. Recruitment to endosomal membranes via this domain requires the presence of phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate or other phosphatidylinositides (By similarity).
  • The PH domain is necessary for localization to the ruffle membrane. Recruitment to ruffle membrane occurs through binding of phosphoinositides by the PH domain. This domain also contributes to the lipid-binding properties of the protein (By similarity).
  • The DH domain is necessary for its ability to activate JNK1 via CDC42.
  • Contains 1 DH (DBL-homology) domain.
  • Contains 2 PH domains.
Similarity:
  • Contains 1 FYVE-type zinc finger.
