GeneCards Summary for DRG1 Gene
DRG1 (Developmentally Regulated GTP Binding Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is DRG2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for DRG1 Gene
Catalyzes the conversion of GTP to GDP through hydrolysis of the gamma-phosphate bond in GTP (PubMed:29915238, PubMed:23711155). Appears to have an intrinsic GTPase activity that is stimulated by ZC3H15/DFRP1 binding likely by increasing the affinity for the potassium ions (PubMed:23711155). When hydroxylated at C-3 of 'Lys-22' by JMJD7, may bind to RNA and play a role in translation (PubMed:19819225, PubMed:29915238). Binds to microtubules and promotes microtubule polymerization and stability that are required for mitotic spindle assembly during prophase to anaphase transition. GTPase activity is not necessary for these microtubule-related functions (PubMed:28855639).
