This gene encodes a DENN domain-containing protein that may function as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor that specifically activates ras-related protein Rab-10. This protein also contains a interferon stimulated response element-binding domain and may be involved in regulating the v-myc avian myelocytomatosis viral (MYC) oncogene. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 8. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]
GeneCards Summary for DENND4A Gene
DENND4A (DENN Domain Containing 4A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DENND4A include Congenital Stationary Night Blindness. Among its related pathways are RAB GEFs exchange GTP for GDP on RABs and Vesicle-mediated transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include Rab guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DENND4C.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for DENND4A Gene
Probable guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which may activate RAB10. Promotes the exchange of GDP to GTP, converting inactive GDP-bound Rab proteins into their active GTP-bound form. According to PubMed:8056341, it may bind to ISRE-like element (interferon-stimulated response element) of MYC P2 promoter.
