This gene encodes a member of the GAP1 family of GTPase-activating proteins that suppresses the Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in response to Ca(2+). Stimuli that increase intracellular Ca(2+) levels result in the translocation of this protein to the plasma membrane where it activates Ras GTPase activity. Consequently Ras is converted from the active GTP-bound state to the inactive GDP-bound state and no longer activates downstream pathways that regulate gene expression cell growth and differentiation. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
