Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E
Pragmin is a novel Rnd2 effector protein predominantly expressed in neurons, including cortical and hippocampal neurons. Rnd2 is a member of the Rnd subfamily, comprising Rnd1, Rnd2, and Rnd3. Pragmin specifically binds to Rnd2 among the Rho family GTPases in a GTP-dependent manner as revealed by in vitro and in vivo binding assays. Rnd2-bound Pragmin significantly stimulates RhoA activity and induces cell contraction through RhoA and the Rho-kinase pathway in HeLa cells. In PC12 cells, expressing Pragmin inhibits nerve growth factor induced neurite outgrowth in response to Rnd2, and knock-down of Pragmin by Pragmin-specific small interfering RNA enhances neurite elongation. This protein thus stimulates RhoA activity and regulates neurite outgrowth. Human Pragmin gene is localized on chromosomal region 8p23.1.
