  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      May act as a GTPase-activating protein for RAB2A, RAB8A, RAB10 and RAB14. Isoform 2 promotes insulin-induced glucose transporter SLC2A4/GLUT4 translocation at the plasma membrane, thus increasing glucose uptake.
    • Tissue specificity

      Widely expressed. Isoform 2 is the highest overexpressed in most tissues. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in skeletal muscle and heart, but was not detectable in the liver nor in adipose tissue. Isoform 2 is strongly expressed in adrenal and thyroid gland, and also in lung, kidney, colon, brain and adipose tissue. Isoform 2 is moderately expressed in skeletal muscle. Expressed in pancreatic Langerhans islets, including beta cells (at protein level). Expression is decreased by twofold in pancreatic islets in type 2 diabetes patients compared to control subjects. Up-regulated in T cells from patients with atopic dermatitis.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 2 PID domains.
      Contains 1 Rab-GAP TBC domain.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated by AKT1; insulin-induced.
      Insulin-stimulated phosphorylation is required for SLC2A4/GLUT4 translocation.
      Physiological hyperinsulinemia increases phosphorylation in skeletal muscle. Insulin-stimulated phosphorylation is reduced by 39% in type 2 diabetic patients.
    • Cellular localization

      Cytoplasm. Isoform 2 shows a cytoplasmic perinuclear localization in a myoblastic cell line in resting and insulin-stimulated cells.
