Official Full Name
BAI1-associated protein 2
The protein encoded by this gene has been identified as a brain-specific angiogenesis inhibitor (BAI1)-binding protein.;This adaptor protein links membrane bound G-proteins to cytoplasmic effector proteins. This protein functions as an;insulin receptor tyrosine kinase substrate and suggests a role for insulin in the central nervous system. It also;associates with a downstream effector of Rho small G proteins, which is associated with the formation of stress fibers;and cytokinesis. This protein is involved in lamellipodia and filopodia formation in motile cells and may affect;neuronal growth-cone guidance. This protein has also been identified as interacting with the;dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy gene, which is associated with an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease.;Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.
