Regulator of Gz-selective protein signaling 1; Inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form. Binds selectively to G(z)-alpha and G(alpha)-i2 subunits, accelerates their GTPase activity and regulates their signaling activities. The G(z)-alpha activity is inhibited by the phosphorylation and palmitoylation of the G- protein. Negatively regulates mu-opioid receptor-mediated activation of the G-proteins (By similarity).
