|Other Names||Regulator of G-protein signaling 2, RGS2, Cell growth-inhibiting gene 31 protein, G0/G1 switch regulatory protein 8, RGS2, G0S8|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 19-32 of HUMAN RGS2|
|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.|
|Function||Regulates G protein-coupled receptor signaling cascades. Inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits, thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form (PubMed:11063746, PubMed:19478087). Plays a role in the regulation of blood pressure in response to signaling via G protein-coupled receptors and GNAQ. Plays a role in regulating the constriction and relaxation of vascular smooth muscle (By similarity). Binds EIF2B5 and blocks its activity, thereby inhibiting the translation of mRNA into protein (PubMed:19736320).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane Cytoplasm. Nucleus, nucleolus Isoform 3: Cell membrane. Cytoplasm. Nucleus, nucleolus|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)|

Regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) family members are regulatory molecules that act as GTPase activating proteins (GAPs) for G alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G proteins. RGS proteins are able to deactivate G protein subunits of the Gi alpha, Go alpha and Gq alpha subtypes. They drive G proteins into their inactive GDP-bound forms. Regulator of G protein signaling 2 belongs to this family. The protein acts as a mediator of myeloid differentiation and may play a role in leukemogenesis.
