Protein very KIND (IPR029899)

Short name: KNDC1

Family relationships



Protein very KIND (also known as KNDC1, kinase noncatalytic C-lobe domain containing 1) is a brain-specific Ras guanine nucleotide exchange factor (RasGEF) that regulates microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP2) during dendrite morphogenesis [PMID: 17984326, PMID: 21385318]. It contains two kinase noncatalytic C-lobe domains (KIND1 and KIND2), a RasGEF N-terminal domain (RasN) and a putative RasGEF domain [PMID: 16099729]. The KIND2 domain regulates dendrite complexity via targeting of v-KIND to MAP2 associated with the dendritic microtubule cytoskeleton [PMID: 21385318].
