Summaries for RACGAP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RACGAP1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the GTPase-activating protein (GAP) family. GAPs bind activated forms of Rho GTPases and stimulate GTP hydrolysis. Through this catalytic function, GAPs negatively regulate Rho-mediated signals. This protein plays a regulatory role in initiation of cytokinesis, controlling cell growth and differentiation of hematopoietic cells, regulating spermatogenesis, and in neuronal proliferation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for RACGAP1 Gene

RACGAP1 (Rac GTPase Activating Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and GTPase activator activity. An important paralog of this gene is ABR.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RACGAP1 Gene

  • Component of the centralspindlin complex that serves as a microtubule-dependent and Rho-mediated signaling required for the myosin contractile ring formation during the cell cycle cytokinesis. Required for proper attachment of the midbody to the cell membrane during cytokinesis. Plays key roles in controlling cell growth and differentiation of hematopoietic cells through mechanisms other than regulating Rac GTPase activity. Also involved in the regulation of growth-related processes in adipocytes and myoblasts. May be involved in regulating spermatogenesis and in the RACGAP1 pathway in neuronal proliferation. Shows strong GAP (GTPase activation) activity towards CDC42 and RAC1 and less towards RHOA. Essential for the early stages of embryogenesis. May play a role in regulating cortical activity through RHOA during cytokinesis. May participate in the regulation of sulfate transport in male germ cells.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterotetramer of two molecules each of RACGAP1 and KIF23. Found in the centralspindlin complex composed of RACGAP1 and KIF23. Associates with alpha-, beta- and gamma-tubulin and microtubules. Interacts via its Rho-GAP domain with RND2. Associates with AURKB during M phase. Interacts via its Rho-GAP domain and basic region with PRC1. The interaction with PRC1 inhibits its GAP activity towards CDC42 in vitro, which may be required for maintaining normal spindle morphology. Interacts with SLC26A8 via its N-terminus. Interacts with RAB11FIP3. Interacts with ECT2; the interaction is direct, occurs at anaphase and during cytokinesis in a microtubule-dependent manner and is enhanced by phosphorylation by PLK1. Interacts with KIF23; the interaction is direct.

Post-translational modifications for RACGAP1 Gene

  • Phosphorylated at multiple sites in the midbody during cytokinesis. Phosphorylation by AURKB on Ser-387 at the midbody is, at least in part, responsible for exerting its latent GAP activity towards RhoA. Phosphorylation on multiple serine residues by PLK1 enhances its association with ECT2 and is critical for cleavage furrow formation.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys173, Lys248, Lys292, Lys430, Lys490, and Lys587
