RGL2 [RalGDS (Ral guanine nucleotide dissociation stimulator)- like 2] is a member of the RalGDS family that we have previously isolated and characterized as a potential effector for Ras and the Ras analogue Rap1b. The protein shares 89% sequence identity with its mouse orthologue Rlf (RalGDS-like factor). In the present study we further characterized the G-protein-binding features of RGL2 and also demonstrated that RGL2 has guanine-nucleotideexchange activity toward the small GTPase RalA. We found that RGL2/Rlf properties are well conserved between human and mouse species. Both RGL2 and Rlf have a putative PKA (protein kinase A) phosphorylation site at theC-terminal of the domain that regulates the interaction with small GTPases. We demonstrated that RGL2 is phosphorylated by PKA and phosphorylation reduces the ability of RGL2 to bind H-Ras. As RGL2 and Rlf are unique in the RalGDS family in having a PKA site in the Rasbinding domain, the results of the present study indicate that Ras may distinguish between the different RalGDS family members by their phosphorylation by PKA.
