  • FunctionInhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form. Binds selectively to G(z)-alpha and G(alpha)-i2 subunits, accelerates their GTPase activity and regulates their signaling activities. The G(z)-alpha activity is inhibited by the phosphorylation and palmitoylation of the G-protein. Negatively regulates mu-opioid receptor-mediated activation of the G-proteins.
  • Tissue specificityPredominantly expressed in the cerebellum. Also expressed in the cortex and medulla. Weakly expressed in a number of peripheral tissues notably spleen, lung and leukocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 RGS domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Fatty acylated. Heavily palmitoylated in the cysteine string motif.
    N- and O-glycosylated in synapsomal membranes.
    Serine phosphorylated in synapsomal membranes.
    Sumoylated by SUMO1 and SUM02 in synaptosomes. The sumoylated forms act as a scaffold for sequestering mu-opioid receptor-activated G(alpha) subunits.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane. Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Shuttles between the cytoplasm/cell membrane and the nucleus. Anchored to the membrane through palmitoylation.
