v ral simian leukemia viral oncogene homolog B (ras related GTP binding protein)
v ral simian leukemia viral oncogene homolog B (ras related)
機能Multifunctional GTPase involved in a variety of cellular processes including gene expression, cell migration, cell proliferation, oncogenic transformation and membrane trafficking. Accomplishes its multiple functions by interacting with distinct downstream effectors. Acts as a GTP sensor for GTP-dependent exocytosis of dense core vesicles. Required both to stabilize the assembly of the exocyst complex and to localize functional exocyst complexes to the leading edge of migrating cells. Plays a role in the late stages of cytokinesis and is required for the abscission of the bridge joining the sister cells emerging from mitosis. Required for suppression of apoptosis.
配列類似性Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Ras family.
翻訳後修飾Prenylation is essential for membrane localization. The geranylgeranylated form and the farnesylated mutant does not undergo alternative prenylation in response to geranylgeranyltransferase I inhibitors (GGTIs) and farnesyltransferase I inhibitors (FTIs).
細胞内局在Cell membrane. During late cytokinesis localizes at the midbody.
