Human Gene SHOC2 (ENST00000369452.9) from GENCODE V43
  Description: Homo sapiens SHOC2 leucine rich repeat scaffold protein (SHOC2), transcript variant 1, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_007373)
RefSeq Summary (NM_007373): This gene encodes a protein that consists almost entirely of leucine-rich repeats, a domain implicated in protein-protein interactions. The protein may function as a scaffold linking RAS to downstream signal transducers in the RAS/ERK MAP kinase signaling cascade. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Noonan-like syndrome with loose anagen hair. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010].

-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Leucine-rich repeat protein SHOC-2; AltName: Full=Protein soc-2 homolog; AltName: Full=Protein sur-8 homolog;
FUNCTION: Regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1c) that acts as a M-Ras/MRAS effector and participates in MAPK pathway activation. Upon M-Ras/MRAS activation, targets PP1c to specifically dephosphorylate the 'Ser-259' inhibitory site of RAF1 kinase and stimulate RAF1 activity at specialized signaling complexes.
SUBUNIT: Interacts with M-Ras/MRAS, and RAF1. Forms a multiprotein complex with Ras (M-Ras/MRAS), Raf (RAF1) and protein phosphatase 1 (PPP1CA, PPP1CB and PPP1CC). Interacts with ERBB2IP; disrupts the interaction with RAF1 and Ras, leading to prevent activation of the Ras signaling pathway. Specifically binds K-Ras/KRAS, M- Ras/MRAS and N-Ras/NRAS but not H-Ras/HRAS.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Translocates from cytoplasm to nucleus upon growth factor stimulation.
DISEASE: Defects in SHOC2 are the cause of Noonan syndrome-like disorder with loose anagen hair (NSLH) [MIM:607721]. A syndrome characterized by Noonan dysmorphic features such as macrocephaly, high forehead, hypertelorism, palpebral ptosis, low-set and posteriorly rotated ears, short and webbed neck, pectus anomalies, in association with pluckable, sparse, thin and slow-growing hair.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the SHOC2 family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 20 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=BAA74885.2; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=BAG52235.1; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=CAH72813.1; Type=Erroneous gene model prediction;

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q9UQ13
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
