    Rho guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) 12

  • Overview

    Rho GTPases play a fundamental role in numerous cellular processes that are initiated by extracellular stimuli working through G protein-coupled receptors. The encoded protein may form a complex with G proteins and stimulate Rho-dependent signals. This protein has been observed to form a myeloid/lymphoid fusion partner in acute myeloid leukemia. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Ask a question
Are there any animal models available to study ARHGEF12 function? 01/09/2023

Yes, animal models such as mice have been used to study ARHGEF12 function. Knockout mouse models, where the ARHGEF12 gene is disrupted or deleted, have been generated to investigate the physiological and behavioral consequences of its loss. These models can provide insights into the role of ARHGEF12 in development, neurological processes, and disease.

Can targeting ARHGEF12 have therapeutic potential? 01/29/2022

Yes, targeting ARHGEF12 has the potential for therapeutic intervention. Since dysregulation of ARHGEF12 contributes to cancer progression and metastasis, inhibiting its activity could impede these processes. Furthermore, understanding the role of ARHGEF12 in other diseases, such as cardiovascular disorders, may pave the way for developing novel therapeutic strategies.

Are there any known interacting proteins or molecular partners of ARHGEF12? 01/01/2022

Yes, ARHGEF12 can interact with a variety of proteins and molecules. For example, it can interact with certain Rho GTPases, such as RhoA and Rac1, to regulate their activation. ARHGEF12 can also associate with other signaling proteins, adaptor molecules, and cytoskeletal components to mediate its cellular functions.

Are there any diseases or disorders associated with dysregulation of ARHGEF12 expression or activity? 08/17/2021

Yes, dysregulation of ARHGEF12 has been implicated in several diseases. For example, alterations in ARHGEF12 expression have been observed in certain cancers, such as breast, lung, and colorectal cancers. Dysregulation of ARHGEF12 can contribute to tumor progression and metastasis by promoting cellular processes like migration and invasion.

Can ARHGEF12 be targeted for therapeutic purposes? 03/15/2021

The potential therapeutic targeting of ARHGEF12 is an area of ongoing research. Since ARHGEF12 is involved in various cellular processes and implicated in certain diseases, it represents a potential target for therapeutic intervention. However, further investigation is needed to understand its precise role in disease mechanisms and develop effective therapeutic strategies.

Can ARHGEF12 be regulated by post-translational modifications? 05/25/2020

Yes, post-translational modifications can regulate the activity and function of ARHGEF12. For instance, phosphorylation of specific sites on ARHGEF12 can modulate its activity and interaction with other proteins. Other post-translational modifications, such as acetylation, methylation, and ubiquitination, may also play a role in regulating ARHGEF12. These modifications can impact its stability, localization, and interaction with signaling partners.

How does ARHGEF12 regulate Rho GTPases? 10/15/2019

ARHGEF12 facilitates the exchange of GDP (guanosine diphosphate) for GTP (guanosine triphosphate) on Rho GTPases. This GTP binding leads to the activation of Rho GTPases, allowing them to interact with downstream effectors and regulate cytoskeletal dynamics and other cellular functions.

Are there any drugs or compounds that target ARHGEF12? 07/18/2019

Currently, there are no specific drugs or compounds that directly target ARHGEF12. However, there are drugs that indirectly modulate the activity or downstream effects of Rho GTPases, which can indirectly affect ARHGEF12 signaling. For example, inhibitors of Rho-associated protein kinases (ROCKs), which are downstream effectors of RhoA, can impact the cellular processes influenced by ARHGEF12. Additionally, compounds targeting other pathways that intersect with ARHGEF12-mediated signaling, such as inhibitors of signaling pathways associated with cancer metastasis, may indirectly affect ARHGEF12 activity.

Is ARHGEF12 involved in neuronal development or synaptic plasticity? 07/04/2019

Yes, ARHGEF12 plays a role in neuronal development and synaptic plasticity. It has been found to be involved in the regulation of dendritic spine morphology, synapse formation, and axon guidance.

How does ARHGEF12 contribute to cancer progression? 05/29/2019

ARHGEF12 can contribute to cancer progression through its effects on cell migration, invasion, and metastasis. Dysregulation of ARHGEF12 can lead to aberrant cytoskeletal remodeling, promoting the invasive behavior of cancer cells. In addition, studies have shown that ARHGEF12-mediated signaling can activate downstream pathways involved in cell survival, proliferation, and angiogenesis, which are important for tumor growth and metastasis. These findings suggest that ARHGEF12 may be a potential therapeutic target for inhibiting cancer progression.

Are there any known inhibitors or activators of ARHGEF12? 03/06/2019

Yes, a few compounds have been identified as regulators of ARHGEF12 activity. For instance, Ipatasertib, a small molecule inhibitor, can inhibit the activity of ARHGEF12. Additionally, ARHGEF12 can be activated by various signals, including protein kinases like PKD1, which phosphorylates and activates ARHGEF12, leading to Rho GTPase activation.

Does ARHGEF12 have any known roles in immune responses? 02/13/2019

While ARHGEF12's role in immune responses is less well-studied compared to other cellular processes, emerging evidence suggests its involvement in immune cell migration and activation. ARHGEF12 has been shown to regulate cytoskeletal remodeling in immune cells, which can impact their ability to migrate and respond to stimuli. Further research is needed to fully elucidate its role in immune responses.

Has ARHGEF12 been implicated in any human diseases? 10/13/2018

Yes, ARHGEF12 has been implicated in several human diseases and disorders. For instance, mutations or variations in the ARHGEF12 gene have been associated with familial juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME).

How is ARHGEF12 involved in cytoskeletal remodeling? 06/08/2018

ARHGEF12 plays a crucial role in cytoskeletal remodeling through its activation of Rho GTPases, particularly RhoA and Rac1. ARHGEF12 acts as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), facilitating the exchange of GDP (inactive form) for GTP (active form) on Rho GTPases. This activation leads to downstream signaling cascades that regulate actin polymerization, cell adhesion, and cell migration. By modulating the activity of Rho GTPases, ARHGEF12 can influence the organization and dynamics of the cytoskeleton.

Are there any ongoing clinical trials involving ARHGEF12? 05/07/2018

As of now, there are no ongoing clinical trials specifically targeting ARHGEF12. However, this may change in the future as more research uncovers its potential therapeutic relevance in diseases such as epilepsy and cancer.
