Description…

ARHGEF16 is a guanine nucleotide exchange factor. Guanine nucleotide exchange factors regulate the activation of Rho-like GTPases. Guanidine exchange factors promote the GTP activation of Rho GTPase's by catalyzing the exchange of GDP for GTP.

Overview

ARHGEF16 is a nucleotide exchange factor involved in regulating the activation of Rho-like GTPases. When the regulation occurs incorrectly, ARHGEF16 and other nucleotide exchange factors can aid malignant transformation.

Performance Comment

ANO1 was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
