FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the DOCK180 family of guanine nucleotide exchange factors. Guanine nucleotide exchange factors interact with Rho GTPases and are components of intracellular signaling networks. Mutations in this gene result in the autosomal recessive form of the hyper-IgE syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for inactivating mutations of this gene exhibit loss of marginal zone B cells, decrease in peritoneal B1 cells and peripheral naive T cells, failure of sustained antibody response after immunization, failure of germinal center persistence, and failure of B cell affinity maturation.
