|Other Names||Ras GTPase-activating protein 4, Calcium-promoted Ras inactivator, Ras p21 protein activator 4, RasGAP-activating-like protein 2, RASA4, CAPRI, GAPL, KIAA0538|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CAPRI, GAPL, KIAA0538|
|Function||Ca(2+)-dependent Ras GTPase-activating protein, that switches off the Ras-MAPK pathway following a stimulus that elevates intracellular calcium. Functions as an adaptor for Cdc42 and Rac1 during FcR-mediated phagocytosis.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=Localized to the cytosol as a result of its lack of phosphoinositide binding activity. Upon agonist-stimulated calcium mobilization, utilizes the C2A and C2B domains to associate with the plasma membrane|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed.|

This gene encodes a member of the GAP1 family ofGTPase-activating proteins that suppresses theRas/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in response to Ca(2+).Stimuli that increase intracellular Ca(2+) levels result in thetranslocation of this protein to the plasma membrane, where itactivates Ras GTPase activity. Consequently, Ras is converted fromthe active GTP-bound state to the inactive GDP-bound state and nolonger activates downstream pathways that regulate gene expression,cell growth, and differentiation. Multiple transcript variantsencoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
