Summaries for RASA4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RASA4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the GAP1 family of GTPase-activating proteins that suppresses the Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in response to Ca(2+). Stimuli that increase intracellular Ca(2+) levels result in the translocation of this protein to the plasma membrane, where it activates Ras GTPase activity. Consequently, Ras is converted from the active GTP-bound state to the inactive GDP-bound state and no longer activates downstream pathways that regulate gene expression, cell growth, and differentiation. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RASA4 Gene

RASA4 (RAS P21 Protein Activator 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ras signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is RASA2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RASA4 Gene

  • Ca(2+)-dependent Ras GTPase-activating protein, that switches off the Ras-MAPK pathway following a stimulus that elevates intracellular calcium. Functions as an adaptor for Cdc42 and Rac1 during FcR-mediated phagocytosis.
