GeneCards Summary for NKIRAS1 Gene
NKIRAS1 (NFKB Inhibitor Interacting Ras-Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are NF-KappaB Family Pathway and TNF-alpha/NF-kB Signaling Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NKIRAS2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NKIRAS1 Gene
Atypical Ras-like protein that acts as a potent regulator of NF-kappa-B activity by preventing the degradation of NF-kappa-B inhibitor beta (NFKBIB) by most signals, explaining why NFKBIB is more resistant to degradation. May act by blocking phosphorylation of NFKBIB and mediating cytoplasmic retention of p65/RELA NF-kappa-B subunit. It is unclear whether it acts as a GTPase. Both GTP- and GDP-bound forms block phosphorylation of NFKBIB.
