Description…

RGS5 is a member of the regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) family, which are signal transduction molecules that are involved in the regulation of heterotrimeric G proteins by acting as GTPase activators. RGS5 has been found to be involved in tumor angiogenesis and to antagonize the angiogenic effect of VEGF. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found.
