  Domain Name: RhoGap_RalBP1
RhoGap_RalBP1: RhoGAP (GTPase-activator protein [GAP] for Rho-like small GTPases) domain present in RalBP1 proteins, also known as RLIP, RLIP76 or cytocentrin. RalBP1 plays an important role in endocytosis during interphase. During mitosis, RalBP1 transiently associates with the centromere and has been shown to play an essential role in the proper assembly of the mitotic apparatus. RalBP1 is an effector of the Ral GTPase which itself is an effector of Ras. RalBP1 contains a RhoGAP domain, which shows weak activity towards Rac1 and Cdc42, but not towards Ral, and a Ral effector domain binding motif. Small GTPases cluster into distinct families, and all act as molecular switches, active in their GTP-bound form but inactive when GDP-bound. The Rho family of GTPases activates effectors involved in a wide variety of developmental processes, including regulation of cytoskeleton formation, cell proliferation and the JNK signaling pathway. GTPases generally have a low intrinsic GTPase hydrolytic activity but there are family-specific groups of GAPs that enhance the rate of GTP hydrolysis by several orders of magnitude.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
