Summaries for ARHGAP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARHGAP1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a large family of proteins that activate Rho-type guanosine triphosphate (GTP) metabolizing enzymes. The encoded protein contains a SRC homology 3 domain and interacts with Bcl-2-associated protein family members. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]

GeneCards Summary for ARHGAP1 Gene

ARHGAP1 (Rho GTPase Activating Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARHGAP1 include Exudative Vitreoretinopathy 1 and Exudative Vitreoretinopathy. Among its related pathways are Regulation of CDC42 activity and p75 NTR receptor-mediated signalling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and SH3/SH2 adaptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is PRR5-ARHGAP8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARHGAP1 Gene

  • GTPase activator for the Rho, Rac and Cdc42 proteins, converting them to the putatively inactive GDP-bound state. Cdc42 seems to be the preferred substrate.
