This gene encodes a member of the RHOGAP family. GAP(GTPase-activating) family proteins participate in signalingpathways that regulate cell processes involved in cytoskeletalchanges. GAP proteins alternate between an active (GTP-bound) andinactive (GDP-bound) state based on the GTP:GDP ratio in the cell.This family member is a multidomain protein that functions topromote Erk activation and cell motility. Alternative splicingresults in multiple transcript variants. Read-through transcriptsfrom the upstream proline rich 5, renal (PRR5) gene into this genealso exist, which led to the original description of PRR5 andARHGAP8 being a single gene.
