RAS guanyl releasing protein 2

The protein encoded by this gene is a brain-enriched nucleotide exchanged factor that contains an N-terminal GEF domain, 2 tandem repeats of EF-hand calcium-binding motifs, and a C-terminal diacylglycerol/phorbol ester-binding domain. This protein can activate small GTPases, including RAS and RAP1/RAS3. The nucleotide exchange activity of this protein can be stimulated by calcium and diacylglycerol. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on CalDAG-GEFI
RAP1-GTPase signaling and platelet function.
Bergmeier et al., Chapel Hill, United States. In J Mol Med (berl), Jan 2016
Our recent studies demonstrate that the antagonistic balance between the RAP1 regulators, CalDAG-GEFI and RASA3, is critical for the modulation of platelet adhesiveness, both in circulation and at sites of vascular injury.
Update on the inherited platelet disorders.
Lambert, Philadelphia, United States. In Curr Opin Hematol, Sep 2015
RECENT FINDINGS: The description of novel mechanisms of disease including mutations in PRKACG, in a family with severe macrothrombocytopenia, RUNX1 and FLI1 mutations in patients with inherited mild platelet function disorders and CalDAG-GEFI resulting in a severe platelet bleeding phenotype show that there is still much to be learned from studying families and molecular sequencing of patients with well phenotyped platelet disorders.

Nurden et al., Pessac, France. In J Thromb Haemost, Jun 2015
Next-generation sequencing technology (NGST), mainly exome sequencing, has highlighted genes responsible for defects in platelet secretion (NBEAL2, gray platelet syndrome), procoagulant activity (STIM1, Stormorken syndrome), and activation pathways (RASGRP2, CalDAG-GEFI deficiency and integrin dysfunction; PRKACG, cyclic adenosine monophosphate-dependent protein kinase deficiency).
RASA3 is a critical inhibitor of RAP1-dependent platelet activation.
Bergmeier et al., In J Clin Invest, Apr 2015
RAP1 activity in platelets is controlled by the GEF CalDAG-GEFI and an unknown regulator that operates downstream of the adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor, P2Y12, a target of antithrombotic therapy.

Here we evaluated the contribution of the guanine nucleotide exchange factor, CalDAG-GEFI, and P2Y12, key regulators of Rap1 signaling in platelets, to ITT induced by these clinically relevant ICs.
Human CalDAG-GEFI gene (RASGRP2) mutation affects platelet function and causes severe bleeding.
