External Ids for IQGAP1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the IQGAP family. The protein contains four IQ domains, one calponin homology domain, one Ras-GAP domain and one WW domain. It interacts with components of the cytoskeleton, with cell adhesion molecules, and with several signaling molecules to regulate cell morphology and motility. Expression of the protein is upregulated by gene amplification in two gastric cancer cell lines. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for IQGAP1 Gene
IQGAP1 (IQ Motif Containing GTPase Activating Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IQGAP1 include bullous skin disease and skin disease. Among its related pathways are Proteoglycans in cancer and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and calmodulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is IQGAP3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IQGAP1 Gene
Binds to activated CDC42 but does not stimulate its GTPase activity. It associates with calmodulin. Could serve as an assembly scaffold for the organization of a multimolecular complex that would interface incoming signals to the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton at the plasma membrane. May promote neurite outgrowth.
