G protein-coupled receptor kinase-interacting protein 1 C term
This domain family is found in eukaryotes, and is approximately 120 amino acids in length. The family is found in association with pfam01412, pfam00023, pfam08518. GIT1 plays an important role in cell adhesion, motility, cytoskeletal remodeling and membrane trafficking. To perform this function, it localizes p21-activated kinase (PAK) and PAK-interactive exchange factor to focal adhesions. Its activation is regulated by interaction between its paxillin-binding C terminal and the LD motifs of paxillin. The C terminal folds into a four helix bundle.
