GTPase-activating Protein - Regulation of GAPs
... While GAPs serve to regulate the G proteins, there is also some level of regulation of the GAPs themselves ... Many GAPs have allosteric sites which serve as interfaces with downstream targets of the particular path that they regulate ... For example, RGS9-1, the GAP in the photoreceptors from above, interacts with cGMP phosphodiesterase (cGMP PDE), a downstream component of phototransduction in the retina ...
