PLEKHG6 (Pleckstrin Homology And RhoGEF Domain Containing G6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PLEKHG6 include Joubert Syndrome 21. Among its related pathways are Regulation of RhoA activity. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and Rho guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARHGEF18.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PLEKHG6 Gene
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor activating the small GTPase RHOA, which, in turn, induces myosin filament formation. Also activates RHOG. Does not activate RAC1, or to a much lower extent than RHOA and RHOG. Part of a functional unit, involving PLEKHG6, MYH10 and RHOA, at the cleavage furrow to advance furrow ingression during cytokinesis. In epithelial cells, required for the formation of microvilli and membrane ruffles on the apical pole. Along with EZR, required for normal macropinocytosis.
