Cdc42 guanine nucleotide exchange factor

collybistin, ARHGEF9, hPEM-2
The protein encoded by this gene is a Rho-like GTPase that switches between the active (GTP-bound) state and inactive (GDP-bound) state to regulate CDC42 and other genes. Defects in this gene are a cause of startle disease with epilepsy (STHEE), also known as hyperekplexia with epilepsy. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010] (from NCBI)

Rare exonic deletions implicate the synaptic organizer Gephyrin (GPHN) in risk for autism, schizophrenia and seizures.
Scherer et al., Toronto, Canada. In Hum Mol Genet, 2013
Gephyrin has well-established functional links with several synaptic proteins that have been implicated in genetic risk for neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), schizophrenia and epilepsy including the neuroligins (NLGN2, NLGN4), the neurexins (NRXN1, NRXN2, NRXN3) and collybistin (ARHGEF9).

Poot et al., Utrecht, Netherlands. In Mol Syndromol, 2013
ARHGEF9 encodes collybistin (CB), which is required for localization of the inhibitory receptor-anchoring protein gephyrin and for formation and maintenance of postsynaptic GABAA and glycine receptors.
CHD1L: a novel oncogene.
Xu et al., Nanjing, China. In Mol Cancer, 2012
The underlying mechanisms of CHD1L activation may disrupt the cell death program via binding the apoptotic protein Nur77 or through activation of the AKT pathway by up-regulation of CHD1L-mediated target genes (e.g., ARHGEF9, SPOCK1 or TCTP).

In this review, we discuss recent results derived mainly from the analysis of mutant mice lacking a specific GABA(A) receptor subtype or a core protein of the GABAergic postsynaptic density (neuroligin-2, collybistin), highlighting the molecular diversity of GABAergic synapses and its relevance for brain plasticity and function.

Kuhse et al., Heidelberg, Germany. In Mol Cell Neurosci, 2012
Collybistin (Cb) knock-down induced impairment in GABAergic neurotransmission could be rescued by the expression of any of the Cb isoforms, independent of their C-termini or the presence of the SH3-domain in the N-terminal region.
