Gene: CDC42 (cell division cycle 42) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDC42
Name: cell division cycle 42
Description: Exhibits several functions, including GBD domain binding activity; GTP binding activity; and enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of cellular component organization; and regulation of cell cycle process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi transport complex; midbody; and spindle. Colocalizes with the centrosome. Implicated in fibrosarcoma. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; bipolar disorder; pancreatic cancer; and rhinitis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
