GIT

Helical motif in the GIT family of ADP-ribosylation factor GTPase-activating proteins
GIT
SMART accession number:SM00555
Description: Helical motif in the GIT family of ADP-ribosylation factor GTPase-activating proteins, and in yeast Spa2p and Sph1p (CPP; unpublished results). In p95-APP1 the N-terminal GIT motif might be involved in binding PIX.
Interpro abstract (IPR013724):

GIT proteins are signalling integrators with GTPase-activating function which may be involved in the organisation of the cytoskeletal matrix assembled at active zones (CAZ). The function of the CAZ might be to define sites of neurotransmitter release. Mutations in the Spa2 homology domain (SHD) domain of GIT1 described here interfere with the association of GIT1 with Piccolo, beta-PIX, and focal adhesion kinase [(PUBMED:12473661)].
