RHOG Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 225 amino acids (1-188) and having a molecular mass of 25.2 kDa. RHOG is fused to a 37 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
RHOG belongs to the Rac subfamily of the Rho family of small G proteins. RHOG is a small monomeric GTP-binding protein (G protein), and is a key element of several intracellular signalling pathways. RHOG is needed for the formation of membrane ruffles during macropinocytosis. RHOG takes part in cell migration and is essential for the formation of cup-like structures during trans-endothelial migration of leukocytes. Similar to various small G proteins RHOG has a role in several cellular signalling mechanisms such as cell motility, gene transcription, endocytosis, neurite outgrowth, protection from anoikis and regulation of the neutrophil NADPH oxidase.
