Function: Multifunctional GTPase involved in a variety of cellular processes including gene expression, cell migration, cell proliferation, oncogenic transformation and membrane trafficking. Accomplishes its multiple functions by interacting with distinct downstream effectors. Acts as a GTP sensor for GTP-dependent exocytosis of dense core vesicles. Plays a role in the early stages of cytokinesis and is required to tether the exocyst to the cytokinetic furrow. The RALA-exocyst complex regulates integrin- dependent membrane raft exocytosis and growth signaling. Key regulator of LPAR1 signaling and competes with ADRBK1 for binding to LPAR1 thus affecting the signaling properties of the receptor. Required for anchorage-independent proliferation of transformed cells.
Cellular location: Cell surface. Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor; Cytoplasmic side. Cleavage furrow. Midbody. Note=Prior to LPA treatment found predominantly at the cell surface and in the presence of LPA colocalizes with LPAR1 and LPAR2 in the endocytic vesicles. During early cytokinesis localizes at the cleavage furrow membrane. Colocalizes with EXOC2 at the early midbody ring and persists there till maturation of the midbody.
