Description. RHOBTB2 is a member of the evolutionarily conserved RHOBTB subfamily of Rho GTPases. For background information on RHOBTBs, see RHOBTB1 (607351).Gene Function. By yeast 2-hybrid analysis and coimmunoprecipitation of endogenous proteins from HeLa and HEK293 cells, Wilkins et al. (2004) found that RHOBTB2 bound to the ubiquitin ligase scaffold protein CUL3 (603136). RHOBTB2 did not bind to any other cullin family members, and the interaction required the first BTB domain of RHOBTB2. RHOBTB2 carrying a tyr284-to-asp (Y284D) mutation in the first BTB domain, which was found in a lung cancer cell line, was unable to bind CUL3 and avoided degradation by the ubiquitin/proteasome system, resulting in increased RHOBTB2 protein levels in vivo.
