Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000941
UniProt IDQ96JJ3
Primary gene name(s)ELMO2
Synonym gene name(s)CED12A, KIAA1834
Protein nameEngulfment and cell motility protein 2
Protein functionInvolved in cytoskeletal rearrangements required for phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and cell motility. Acts in association with DOCK1 and CRK. Was initially proposed to be required in complex with DOCK1 to activate Rac Rho small GTPases. May enhance the guanine nucleotide exchange factor, GEF activity of DOCK1. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11595183, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11703939, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20679435, ECO:0000269|PubMed:27476657}.
