EPS8L2 Stimulates guanine exchange activity of SOS1. May play a role in membrane ruffling and remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton. In the cochlea, is required for stereocilia maintenance in adult hair cells. Belongs to the EPS8 family. Detected in fibroblasts and placenta. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
