Description The RGS17 gene spans over a region of 120 kbp DNA including 4 coding exons and 1 non-coding exon (exon 1).
Transcription The RGS17 gene mRNA consists of about 1472 nucleotides with an open reading frame (ORF) of 633 bases.
Pseudogene RGS17P1 regulator of G-protein signaling 17 pseudogene 1.


Note 210 amino acids; 24 kDa.
  Diagram of the RGS17 protein in scale. The numbers represent specific residues. The regions are RGS_RZ-like (Regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) domain found in the RZ protein), putative G-alpha interaction site. C: Carboxyl-terminal; N: Amino-terminal.
Description The RGS17 protein consists of 210 amino acid residues. This gene encodes a member of the regulator of G-protein signaling family. This protein contains a conserved, 120 amino acid motif called the RGS domain and a cysteine-rich region.
Expression Widely expressed in human organs.
Localisation Its cellular localization has not been formally monitored to date.
Function The protein attenuates the signaling activity of G-proteins by binding to activated, GTP-bound G alpha subunits and acting as a GTPase activating protein (GAP), increasing the rate of conversion of the GTP to GDP. RGS proteins are GTPase-activating proteins for Gi and Gq class G-alpha proteins. They accelerate transit through the cycle of GTP binding and hydrolysis and thereby accelerate signaling kinetics and termination. This hydrolysis allows the G alpha subunits to bind G beta/gamma subunit heterodimers, forming inactive G-protein heterotrimers, thereby terminating the signal.
Homology The RGS17 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, and zebrafish.


Germinal No germline mutations in this gene have been reported.
Somatic A synonymous-coding somatic mutations of this gene is reported in pancreas cancer at codon 166, P166P (COSMIC).

Implicated in

Entity Various cancer
Note Lung cancer, prostate cancer.
Disease RSG17 is overexpressed in lung and prostate cancer (James et al., 2009). Expression of RGS17 is up-regulated in 80% of lung tumors, and also up-regulated in prostate tumors. Overexpression of RGS17 induce and maintain cell proliferation.
Entity Lung cancer
Disease hsa-mir-182 is involved in the down regulation of RGS17 expression through two conserved sites located in its 3' UTR region (Sun et al., 2010).
Two SNPs in the first intron of RGS17 (rs4083914 and rs9479510) were found associated with familial lung cancer susceptibility (You et al., 2009).
Entity Ovarian cancer
Disease RGS2, RGS5, RGS10 and RGS17 transcripts are expressed at significantly lower levels in cells resistant to chemotherapy compared with parental, chemo-sensitive cells in ovarian cancer cells (Hooks et al., 2010).
Prognosis RGS17 loss of expression contributes to the development of chemoresistance in ovarian cancer cells.


Regulators of G-Protein signaling RGS10 and RGS17 regulate chemoresistance in ovarian cancer cells.
