Summaries for RASD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RASD1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the Ras superfamily of small GTPases and is induced by dexamethasone. The encoded protein is an activator of G-protein signaling and acts as a direct nucleotide exchange factor for Gi-Go proteins. This protein interacts with the neuronal nitric oxide adaptor protein CAPON, and a nuclear adaptor protein FE65, which interacts with the Alzheimer's disease amyloid precursor protein. This gene may play a role in dexamethasone-induced alterations in cell morphology, growth and cell-extracellular matrix interactions. Epigenetic inactivation of this gene is closely correlated with resistance to dexamethasone in multiple myeloma cells. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for RASD1 Gene

RASD1 (Ras Related Dexamethasone Induced 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RASD1 include Multiple Myeloma and Prostate Leiomyosarcoma. Among its related pathways are nNOS Signaling at Neuronal Synapses and Circadian entrainment. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAP2B.
