Summaries for RERG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RERG Gene

  • RERG, a member of the RAS superfamily of GTPases, inhibits cell proliferation and tumor formation (Finlin et al., 2001 [PubMed 11533059]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for RERG Gene

RERG (RAS-Like, Estrogen-Regulated, Growth Inhibitor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RERG include pituitary carcinoma. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GDP binding. An important paralog of this gene is RASL12.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RERG Gene

  • Binds GDP/GTP and possesses intrinsic GTPase activity. Has higher affinity for GDP than for GTP. In cell lines overexpression leads to a reduction in the rate of proliferation, colony formation and in tumorigenic potential.
