ADP-ribosylation factor guanine nucleotide-exchange factor 2

BIG2, CNTN4, ARFGEF2, Contactin 4
ADP-ribosylation factors (ARFs) play an important role in intracellular vesicular trafficking. The protein encoded by this gene is involved in the activation of ARFs by accelerating replacement of bound GDP with GTP and is involved in Golgi transport. It contains a Sec7 domain, which may be responsible for its guanine-nucleotide exchange activity and also brefeldin A inhibition. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Korpershoek et al., Delft, Netherlands. In J Hypertens, Jun 2015
Five genes showed an FDR below 0.01 and were overexpressed in malignant tumours with a ratio higher than 4, including Contactin 4 (CNTN4), Iroquois Homeobox 3 (IRX3), and Sulfatase 2 (SULF2).
Contactin-4 mediates axon-target specificity and functional development of the accessory optic system.
Huberman et al., San Diego, United States. In Neuron, Jun 2015
Here we show that in the absence of contactin 4 (CNTN4) or one of its binding partners, amyloid precursor protein (APP), a subset of direction-selective RGCs fail to target the nucleus of the optic tract (NOT)--the accessory optic system (AOS) target controlling horizontal image stabilization.
