Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ABR Gene
This gene encodes a protein that is similar to the protein encoded by the breakpoint cluster region gene located on chromosome 22. The protein encoded by this gene contains a GTPase-activating protein domain, a domain found in members of the Rho family of GTP-binding proteins. Functional studies in mice determined that this protein plays a role in vestibular morphogenesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been reported for this gene.

ABR (ABR, RhoGEF And GTPase Activating Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ABR include Retroperitoneal Neuroblastoma and Medulloblastoma. Among its related pathways are p75 NTR receptor-mediated signalling and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and Rho guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is BCR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ABR Gene
GTPase-activating protein for RAC and CDC42. Promotes the exchange of RAC or CDC42-bound GDP by GTP, thereby activating them.
