ARHGAP6 GTPase activator for the Rho-type GTPases by converting them to an inactive GDP-bound state. Could regulate the interactions of signaling molecules with the actin cytoskeleton. Promotes continuous elongation of cytoplasmic processes during cell motility and simultaneous retraction of the cell body changing the cell morphology. Highly expressed in kidney, heart and skeletal muscle followed by retina, lymphoblast, placenta, lung, brain, pancreas and liver. 5 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
