GCET2 Involved in the negative regulation of lymphocyte motility. It mediates the migration-inhibitory effects of IL6. Serves as a positive regulator of the RhoA signaling pathway. Enhancement of RhoA activation results in inhibition of lymphocyte and lymphoma cell motility by activation of its downstream effector ROCK. Is a regulator of B-cell receptor signaling, that acts through SYK kinase activation. Expressed in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and several germinal center (GC)-like lymphoma cell lines (at protein level). Highly expressed in normal GC lymphocytes and GC-derived malignancies. Expressed in thymus and spleen. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
