Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GEM Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the RAD/GEM family of GTP-binding proteins. It is associated with the inner face of the plasma membrane and could play a role as a regulatory protein in receptor-mediated signal transduction. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for GEM Gene
GEM (GTP Binding Protein Overexpressed In Skeletal Muscle) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and magnesium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is RRAD.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GEM Gene
Could be a regulatory protein, possibly participating in receptor-mediated signal transduction at the plasma membrane. Has guanine nucleotide-binding activity but undetectable intrinsic GTPase activity.
