Aliases for RASD2 Gene
External Ids for RASD2 Gene
This gene encodes a Ras-related protein that enriched in striatum. The product of this gene binds to GTP and possesses intrinsic GTPase activity. The gene belongs to the Ras superfamily of small GTPases. The exact function of this gene is unknown, but most striatum-specific mRNAs characterized to date encode components of signal transduction cascades. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for RASD2 Gene
RASD2 (RASD Family, Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAP2B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RASD2 Gene
GTPase signaling protein that binds to and hydrolyzes GTP. Regulates signaling pathways involving G-proteins-coupled receptor and heterotrimeric proteins such as GNB1, GNB2 and GNB3. May be involved in selected striatal competencies, mainly locomotor activity and motor coordination.
