Human Gene ARHGAP24 (uc003hpm.3) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens Rho GTPase activating protein 24 (ARHGAP24), transcript variant 2, mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_031305): This gene encodes a Rho-GTPase activating protein, which is specific for the small GTPase family member Rac. Binding of the encoded protein by filamin A targets it to sites of membrane protrusion, where it antognizes Rac. This results in suppression of lamellae formation and promotion of retraction to regulate cell polarity. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2016]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr4:86,851,426-86,923,823 Size: 72,398 Total Exon Count: 7 Strand: + Coding Region Position: hg19 chr4:86,852,084-86,921,875 Size: 69,792 Coding Exon Count: 7
E-Selectin Andrew D Paterson et al. Arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, and vascular biology 2009, Genome-wide association identifies the ABO blood group as a major locus associated with serum levels of soluble E-selectin., Arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, and vascular biology.
ABO is a major locus for serum soluble E-selectin levels. We excluded population stratification, fine-mapped the association to sub-A alleles, and also document association with additional variation in the ABO region.
Echocardiography Ramachandran S Vasan et al. BMC medical genetics 2007, Genome-wide association of echocardiographic dimensions, brachial artery endothelial function and treadmill exercise responses in the Framingham Heart Study., BMC medical genetics.
In hypothesis-generating GWAS of echocardiography, ETT and BA vascular function in a moderate-sized community-based sample, we identified several SNPs that are candidates for replication attempts and we provide a web-based GWAS resource for the research community.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q8N264-2
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
