Summaries for RALA Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RALA Gene

  • The product of this gene belongs to the small GTPase superfamily, Ras family of proteins. GTP-binding proteins mediate the transmembrane signaling initiated by the occupancy of certain cell surface receptors. This gene encodes a low molecular mass ras-like GTP-binding protein that shares about 50% similarity with other ras proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RALA Gene

RALA (RAS Like Proto-Oncogene A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RALA include Pancreatic Cancer. Among its related pathways are Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway and Bisphosphonate Pathway, Pharmacodynamics. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and ubiquitin protein ligase binding. An important paralog of this gene is RALB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RALA Gene

  • Multifunctional GTPase involved in a variety of cellular processes including gene expression, cell migration, cell proliferation, oncogenic transformation and membrane trafficking. Accomplishes its multiple functions by interacting with distinct downstream effectors. Acts as a GTP sensor for GTP-dependent exocytosis of dense core vesicles. Plays a role in the early stages of cytokinesis and is required to tether the exocyst to the cytokinetic furrow. The RALA-exocyst complex regulates integrin-dependent membrane raft exocytosis and growth signaling. Key regulator of LPAR1 signaling and competes with GRK2 for binding to LPAR1 thus affecting the signaling properties of the receptor. Required for anchorage-independent proliferation of transformed cells.
