Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits Rap guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to cAMP; generation of neurons; and positive regulation of protein phosphorylation. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; bicellular tight junction; and cytoplasmic vesicle. Is expressed in embryo; olfactory epithelium; yolk sac endoderm; and yolk sac mesenchyme. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial adult myoclonic epilepsy 7. Orthologous to human RAPGEF2 (Rap guanine nucleotide exchange factor 2).
