Summaries for RAP2C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RAP2C Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the Ras-related protein subfamily of the Ras GTPase superfamily. Members of this family are small GTPases that act as molecular switches to regulate cellular proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. This protein has been reported to activate in vitro transcriptional activity of the serum response element. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2012]

GeneCards Summary for RAP2C Gene

RAP2C (RAP2C, Member Of RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAP2B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RAP2C Gene

  • Small GTP-binding protein which cycles between a GDP-bound inactive and a GTP-bound active form. May play a role in cytoskeletal rearrangements and regulate cell spreading through activation of the effector TNIK. May play a role in SRE-mediated gene transcription.
