Summaries for RRAGC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RRAGC Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the GTR/RAG GTP-binding protein family. The encoded protein is a monomeric guanine nucleotide-binding protein which forms a heterodimer with RRAGA and RRAGB and is primarily localized to the cytoplasm. The encoded protein promotes intracellular localization of the mTOR complex. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]

GeneCards Summary for RRAGC Gene

RRAGC (Ras-Related GTP Binding C) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Translational Control and Insulin receptor signalling cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RRAGD.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RRAGC Gene

  • Guanine nucleotide-binding protein forming heterodimeric Rag complexes required for the amino acid-induced relocalization of mTORC1 to the lysosomes and its subsequent activation by the GTPase RHEB. This is a crucial step in the activation of the TOR signaling cascade by amino acids.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Forms a heterodimer with RRAGA, in a sequence-independent manner, and RRAGB. Heterodimerization stabilizes proteins of the heterodimer. In complex with RRAGA or RRAGB, interacts with RPTOR; this interaction is particularly efficient with GTP-loaded RRAGB and GDP-loaded RRAGC. Interacts with NOL8. Interacts with SH3BP4; the interaction with this negative regulator is most probably direct, preferentially occurs with the inactive GDP-bound form of RRAGB, is negatively regulated by amino acids and prevents interaction with RPTOR (PubMed:11073942, PubMed:14660641, PubMed:18497260, PubMed:22575674). The Rag heterodimer interacts with SLC38A9; the probable amino acid sensor (PubMed:25561175, PubMed:25567906).
