GeneCards Summary for RGS7 Gene
RGS7 (Regulator Of G-Protein Signaling 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA. GO annotations related to this gene include signal transducer activity and G-protein beta-subunit binding. An important paralog of this gene is RGS12.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RGS7 Gene
Inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form. Activity on G(o)-alpha is specifically enhanced by the RGS6/GNG5 dimer. May play a role in synaptic vesicle exocytosis. May play important role in the rapid regulation of neuronal excitability and the cellular responses to short-lived stimulations (By similarity).
