Protein Information
Name RGS8
Function Regulates G protein-coupled receptor signaling cascades, including signaling via muscarinic acetylcholine receptor CHRM2 and dopamine receptor DRD2 (By similarity). Inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits, thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form (PubMed:18434541). Modulates the activity of potassium channels that are activated in response to DRD2 and CHRM2 signaling (By similarity).

Membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}; Peripheral membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}; Cytoplasmic side {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}. Perikaryon {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}. Cell projection, dendrite {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}. Nucleus {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}. Note=Detected in Purkinje cell soma and dendrites. Associated with Purkinje cell membranes. Not detected in Purkinje cell nuclei. Detected in the nucleus after heterologous expression. Recruited to the cell membrane in the presence of GNAO1. {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P49804}

RGS8 is a member of the regulator of G proteinsignaling (RGS) family and encodes a protein with a single RGSdomain. Regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins areregulatory and structural components of G protein-coupled receptorcomplexes. They accelerate transit through the cycle of GTP bindingand hydrolysis to GDP, thereby terminating signal transduction, butparadoxically, also accelerate receptor-stimulated activation.
