The DOCK2 gene encodes dedicator of cytokinesis 2 (DOCK 2), a hematopoietic cell-specific CDM family protein that is indispensable for lymphocyte chemotaxis. DOCK 2 participates in the cytoskeletal rearrangements that are required for lymphocyte migration in response of chemokines. DOCK 2 may also participate in IL-2 transcriptional activation through the activation of Rac 2. DOCK 2 contains one DHR-1 (CZH-1) domain, one DHR-2 (CZH-2) domain and one SH3 domain. The DHR-2 domain is a putative GEF activity mediator. The DOCK 2 protein also co-localizes with F-Actin, and demonstrates expression in several human tissues, with the highest levels observed in peripheral blood leukocytes, thymus, spleen and liver.
