Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0002662
UniProt IDO43147
Primary gene name(s)SGSM2
Synonym gene name(s)KIAA0397, RUTBC1
Protein nameSmall G protein signaling modulator 2
Protein functionPossesses GTPase activator activity towards RAB32, RAB33B and RAB38, PubMed:26620560, PubMed:21808068. Regulates the trafficking of melanogenic enzymes TYR, TYRP1 and DCT/TYRP2 to melanosomes in melanocytes by inactivating RAB32 and RAB38. Inhibits RAB32 and RAB38 activation both directly by promoting their GTPase activity and indirectly by disrupting the RAB9A-HPS4 interaction which is required for RAB32/38 activation, PubMed:26620560. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21808068, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26620560}.
Subcellular locationCytoplasm {ECO:0000269|PubMed:26620560}. Melanosome {ECO:0000269|PubMed:26620560}. Note=Melanosomal localization is mediated by RAB9A. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:26620560}.
