  Domain Name: RasGAP_IQGAP2
Ras-GTPase Activating Domain of IQ motif containing GTPase activating protein 2. IQGAP2 is a member of the IQGAP family that contains a calponin-homology (CH) domain which binds F-actin, IQGAP-specific repeat, a single WW domain, four IQ motifs which mediate interactions with calmodulin, and a Ras-GTPase-activating protein (GAP)-related domain that binds Rho family GTPases. IQGAP2 and IQGAP3 play important roles in the regulation of the cytoskeleton for axon outgrowth in hippocampal neurons and are thought to stay in a common regulatory pathway. The results of RNA interference studies indicated that IQGAP3 partially compensates functions of IQGAP2, but has lesser ability than IQGAP2 to promote axon outgrowth in hippocampal neuron. Moreover, IQGAP2 is required for the cadherin-mediated cell-to-cell adhesion in Xenopus laevis embryos.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
