UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PLEKHG5 Gene
Functions as a guanine exchange factor (GEF) for RAB26 and thus regulates autophagy of synaptic vesicles in axon terminal of motoneurons (By similarity). Involved in the control of neuronal cell differentiation (PubMed:11704860). Plays a role in angiogenesis through regulation of endothelial cells chemotaxis. Affects also the migration, adhesion, and matrix/bone degradation in macrophages and osteoclasts (PubMed:23777631).
