Signal-induced proliferation associated-like protein 2 (SIPA1L2) is a member of the SIPA1 family of RapGAPs. Little is known of the role of the SIPA1L2 protein, but recent studies of SIPA indicate that its deregulation can cause myeloproliferative stem cell disorders in mice and increased metastases in human cancers. Other studies suggest SIPA1L1 may play important roles in embryo development and control of cell proliferation. Based on the amount of homology between SIPA family members, it is likely that SIPA1L2 plays a role in embryo development and cell proliferation, possibly including oncogenesis.
