Literature associating MCF2 and parasitic protozoa infectious disease
MCF.2 cell line derived transforming sequence; Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) that modulates the Rho family of GTPases. Promotes the conversion of some member of the Rho family GTPase from the GDP-bound to the GTP-bound form. Isoform 1 exhibits no activity toward RHOA, RAC1 or CDC42. Isoform 2 exhibits decreased GEF activity toward CDC42. Isoform 3 exhibits a weak but significant activity toward RAC1 and CDC42. Isoform 4 exhibits significant activity toward RHOA and CDC42. The truncated DBL oncogene is active toward RHOA, RAC1 and CDC42; Belongs to the MCF2 family.
Synonyms: MCF2, MCF2p, hMCF2, MCF2-001, MCF2-002 ...
