    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts (preferentially in its GTP-bound form) with GCC2 (via its GRIP domain) (PubMed:18243103, PubMed:16885419). Interacts (GTP-bound form) with SGSM1; the GDP-bound form has much lower affinity for SGSM1 (PubMed:22637480). Interacts with SGSM2 (PubMed:21808068). The GTP-bound form but not the GDP-bound form interacts with HPS4 and BLOC-3 complex (heterodimer of HPS1 and HPS4) but does not interact with HPS1 alone (PubMed:20048159).
