Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MCF2 Gene
The oncogenic protein encoded by this gene is a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) that exerts control over some members of the Rho family of small GTPases. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. These isoforms exhibit different expression patterns and varying levels of GEF activity.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
GeneCards Summary for MCF2 Gene
MCF2 (MCF.2 Cell Line Derived Transforming Sequence) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MCF2 include Aarskog-Scott Syndrome and Parasitic Protozoa Infectious Disease. Among its related pathways are p75 NTR receptor-mediated signalling and Regulation of CDC42 activity. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include Rho guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MCF2L.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCF2 Gene
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) that modulates the Rho family of GTPases. Promotes the conversion of some member of the Rho family GTPase from the GDP-bound to the GTP-bound form. Isoform 1 exhibits no activity toward RHOA, RAC1 or CDC42. Isoform 2 exhibits decreased GEF activity toward CDC42. Isoform 3 exhibits a weak but significant activity toward RAC1 and CDC42. Isoform 4 exhibits significant activity toward RHOA and CDC42. The truncated DBL oncogene is active toward RHOA, RAC1 and CDC42.
