Summary
VAV2 is the second member of the VAV guanine nucleotide exchange factor family of oncogenes. Unlike VAV1, which is expressed exclusively in hematopoietic cells, VAV2 transcripts were found in most tissues. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008]

Protein Gene Interaction Pubs
Envelope surface glycoprotein gp160, precursor env HIV-1 gp160 alone or CD4/gp160 cross-linking induces tyrosine phosphorylation of intracellular substrates p59fyn, zap 70, and p95vav and also leads to ras activation PubMed
Nef nef The C-terminal SH3 domain of Vav binds to the PXXP motif in HIV-1 Nef and this interaction activates Vav and its downstream effectors, leading to morphological changes, cytoskeletal rearrangements, and the activation of the JNK/SAPK cascade PubMed
nef The interaction of HIV-1 Nef with Vav is detected by pull-down assays; mutations in the Nef PXXP motif maintain some residual binding capacity to Vav PubMed

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
