a guanine nucleotide-binding protein of the G12 class of G-alpha proteins. Agonist binding to Gq-coupled receptors may block Akt activation via the release of active G-alpha(q) subunits that inhibit phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. Heterotrimeric G proteins are composed of 3 units; alpha, beta and gamma. The alpha chain contains the guanine nucleotide binding site. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
