Gene: RGS8 (regulator of G protein signaling 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RGS8
Name: regulator of G protein signaling 8
Description: Exhibits GTPase activator activity. Involved in positive regulation of GTPase activity. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the dendrite; extrinsic component of cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane; and neuronal cell body membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: MGC119067; MGC119068; MGC119069; regulator of G-protein signaling 8; regulator of G-protein signalling 8
