Gene: GNAQ (G protein subunit alpha q) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GNAQ
Name: G protein subunit alpha q
Description: Exhibits GTPase activator activity. Involved in negative regulation of protein kinase activity; protein stabilization; and regulation of canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Localizes to the extracellular exosome and lysosomal membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
