|Function||GTP-binding protein involved in protein trafficking that regulates endocytic recycling and cytoskeleton remodeling. Required for normal completion of mitotic cytokinesis. Plays a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and the formation of stress fibers. May also modulate vesicle budding and uncoating within the Golgi apparatus. Involved in the regulation of dendritic spine development, contributing to the regulation of dendritic branching and filopodia extension. Functions as an allosteric activator of the cholera toxin catalytic subunit, an ADP-ribosyltransferase.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus. Cell membrane; Lipid- anchor. Endosome membrane; Lipid-anchor. Recycling endosome membrane; Lipid-anchor. Cell projection, filopodium membrane; Lipid-anchor. Midbody. Cytoplasm. Cleavage furrow. Note=Distributed throughout the cytoplasm during metaphase. Transiently detected at the ingressing cleavage furrow during mitotic cytokinesis. Recruited to the midbody at later stages of cytokinesis; this requires interaction with KIF23 (By similarity). Recruited to the cell membrane in association with CYTH2 and ARL4C. Colocalizes with DAB2IP at the plasma membrane and endocytic vesicles.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous, with higher levels in heart, substantia nigra, and kidney.|

The ADP-ribosylation factor 6 (ARF6) is a member of the ARF family, which is part of the RAS superfamily (1). The ARF proteins are small guanine nucleotide-binding proteins that stimulate the ADP-ribosyltransferase activity of cholera toxin and play a role in vesicular trafficking and as activators of phospholipase D (2). The product of this gene is localized to the plasma membrane (3), and regulates vesicular trafficking, remodelling of membrane lipids, and signaling pathways that lead to actin remodeling (4).
