The protein encoded by this gene is a Ras guanine nucleotide exchange factor that appears to negatively regulate dendritic growth in the brain. Knockdown of this gene in senescent umbilical vein endothelial cells partially reversed the senescence, showing that this gene could potentially be targeted by anti-aging therapies.

GeneCards Summary for KNDC1 Gene
KNDC1 (Kinase Non-Catalytic C-Lobe Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and Ras guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for KNDC1 Gene
RAS-Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) that controls the negative regulation of neuronal dendrite growth by mediating a signaling pathway linking RAS and MAP2 (By similarity). May be involved in cellular senescence (PubMed:24788352).
