  Domain Name: Rnd1_Rho6
Rnd1/Rho6 GTPases. Rnd1/Rho6 is a member of the novel Rho subfamily Rnd, together with Rnd2/Rho7 and Rnd3/RhoE/Rho8. Rnd1/Rho6 binds GTP but does not hydrolyze it to GDP, indicating that it is constitutively active. In rat, Rnd1/Rho6 is highly expressed in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus during synapse formation, and plays a role in spine formation. Rnd1/Rho6 is also expressed in the liver and in endothelial cells, and is upregulated in uterine myometrial cells during pregnancy. Like Rnd3/RhoE/Rho8, Rnd1/Rho6 is believed to function as an antagonist to RhoA. Most Rho proteins contain a lipid modification site at the C-terminus, with a typical sequence motif CaaX, where a = an aliphatic amino acid and X = any amino acid. Lipid binding is essential for membrane attachment, a key feature of most Rho proteins. Due to the presence of truncated sequences in this CD, the lipid modification site is not available for annotation.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
