Atlastin GTPase 2

WWP2, ATL-2, AIP2, Dld2p
This gene encodes a member of the NEDD4-like protein family. The family of proteins is known to possess ubiquitin-protein ligase activity. The encoded protein contains 4 tandem WW domains. The WW domain is a protein motif consisting of 35 to 40 amino acids and is characterized by 4 conserved aromatic residues. The WW domain may mediate specific protein-protein interactions. Three alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Li et al., China. In Acta Crystallogr Sect F Struct Biol Commun, Oct 2015
WWP2 is a HECT-domain ubiquitin ligase of the Nedd4 family, which is involved in various important biological processes, such as protein degradation, membrane-protein sorting and transportation, the immune response, pluripotency of embryonic stem cells, tumourigenesis and metastasis.

An intramolecular salt bridge drives the soluble domain of GTP-bound atlastin into the postfusion conformation.
Lee et al., Pittsburgh, United States. In J Cell Biol, 2011
The role of GTP hydrolysis in the ATL2 fusion mechanism also needs to be tempered by the uncertainty of whether the behavior of the ATL2 soluble domain, observed herein, reflects the behavior of the full-length, membrane-anchored protein.
