GTPase-activating protein for p21-rac. Insufficient expression of beta-2 chimaerin is expected to lead to higher Rac activity and could therefore play a role in the progression from low-grade to high-grade tumors. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
