Engulfment and cell motility protein 1 (ELMO1)

Involved in cytoskeletal rearrangements required for phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and cell motility. Acts in association with DOCK1 and CRK.

Was initially proposed to be required in complex with DOCK1 to activate Rac Rho small GTPases. May improve the guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) activity of DOCK1.
