FunctionGTP-binding protein involved in protein trafficking; regulates endocytic recycling and cytoskeleton remodeling. May modulate vesicle budding and uncoating within the Golgi apparatus. Functions as an allosteric activator of the cholera toxin catalytic subunit, an ADP-ribosyltransferase. Involved in the regulation of dendritic spine development (By similarity). Contributes to the regulation of dendritic branching and filopodia extension.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Arf family.
Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus. Cell membrane. Endosome membrane. Cell membrane. Cell projection > filopodium membrane. Recruited to the cell membrane in association with CYTH2 and ARL4C.
