GAREM Isoform 1: Acts as an adapter protein that plays a role in intracellular signaling cascades triggered either by the cell surface activated epidermal growth factor receptor and/or cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinases. Promotes activation of the MAPK/ERK signaling pathway. Plays a role in the regulation of cell proliferation. Belongs to the GAREM family. Isoform 1 is ubiquitously expressed. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
