Summaries for RIC8B Gene

GeneCards Summary for RIC8B Gene

RIC8B (RIC8 Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Factor B) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include binding and guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is RIC8A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RIC8B Gene

  • Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which can activate some, but not all, G-alpha proteins by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. Able to potentiate G(olf)-alpha-dependent cAMP accumulation suggesting that it may be an important component for odorant signal transduction.
