G-Protein Coupled Receptors (GPCR) sense extracellular signals and activate different Guanine nucleotide binding proteins. Upon activation, the Guanine nucleotide-binding protein subunit alpha-12 (GNA12) can bind directly to the PH domain of the non-receptor Tyrosine-protein kinase BTK (BTK) in vitro and in vivo. This binding results in the activation of BTK. Physiologically, BTK plays a key role in B lymphocyte development, differentiation and signalling.
