Entrez Gene Summary for ARHGAP32 Gene

  • RICS is a neuron-associated GTPase-activating protein that may regulate dendritic spine morphology and strength by modulating Rho GTPase (see RHOA; MIM 165390) activity (Okabe et al., 2003 [PubMed 12531901]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ARHGAP32 Gene

ARHGAP32 (Rho GTPase Activating Protein 32) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARHGAP32 include Neuroblastoma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by Rho GTPases and G-protein signaling_RhoA regulation pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and phosphatidylinositol binding. An important paralog of this gene is ARHGAP31.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARHGAP32 Gene

  • GTPase-activating protein (GAP) promoting GTP hydrolysis on RHOA, CDC42 and RAC1 small GTPases. May be involved in the differentiation of neuronal cells during the formation of neurite extensions. Involved in NMDA receptor activity-dependent actin reorganization in dendritic spines. May mediate cross-talks between Ras- and Rho-regulated signaling pathways in cell growth regulation. Isoform 2 has higher GAP activity (By similarity).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with NTRK1 (via cytoplasmic domain); the interaction is independent of the phosphorylation state of NTRK1. Interacts with SHC3 (via SH2 domain). Interacts with RASA1 (via SH3 domain); the interaction is necessary for the Ras activation and cell transforming activities of ARHGAP32 (By similarity). Interacts with GAB1 and GAB2. Interacts with CRK and CRKL. Found in a complex with CRKL and BCAR1; upon EGF stimulation BCAR1 may be replaced by EGFR. Interacts with NCK1 (via SH3 domain); NCK1 recruits phosphorylated BCAR1 to the complex. Isoform 2 interacts with FYN; the interaction appears to be dependent on tyrosine phosphorylation of ARHGAP32. Interacts with EGFR; the interaction requires EGF stimulation and is increased by SHC3. Interacts with CDC42; the interaction requires constitutively active CDC42. Interacts with CTNNB1, DLG4, CDH2 and GRIN2B (By similarity).

Post-translational modifications for ARHGAP32 Gene

  • Isoform 2 is phosphorylated on multiple tyrosine residues by FYN. Phosphorylated tyrosine residues undergo dephosphorylation after stimulation of NMDA receptors (By similarity). Phosphorylated in vitro by CaMK2 in the presence of calmodulin and calcium; which inhibits GAP activity (By similarity).
