RhoGDI alpha

RhoGDI alpha controls Rho proteins homeostasis. Regulates the GDP/GTP exchange reaction of the Rho proteins by inhibiting the dissociation of GDP from them, and the subsequent binding of GTP to them. Retains Rho proteins such as CDC42, RAC1 and RHOA in an inactive cytosolic pool, regulating their stability and protecting them from degradation. Actively involved in the recycling and distribution of activated Rho GTPases in the cell, mediates extraction from membranes of both inactive and activated molecules due its exceptionally high affinity for prenylated forms. Through the modulation of Rho proteins, may play a role in cell motility regulation. Its phosphorylation on Y156, S101, and S174 mediates the cycling of Cdc42 and Rac1 to regulate second-phase insulin secretion. In glioma cells, inhibits cell migration and invasion by mediating the signals of SEMA5A and PLXNB3 that lead to inactivation of RAC1. Monomer. Forms a heterodimer with RAC1. Interacts with FER. Belongs to the Rho GDI family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
