|Other Names||Ras-related GTP-binding protein A, Rag A, RagA, Adenovirus E3 14.7 kDa-interacting protein 1, FIP-1, RRAGA (HGNC:16963)|
|Format||Liquid. Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 &mu, l of distilled water. Final Anti-RRAGA antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at -20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||RRAGA Antibody - C-terminal region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Guanine nucleotide-binding protein that plays a crucial role in the cellular response to amino acid availability through regulation of the mTORC1 signaling cascade. Forms heterodimeric Rag complexes with RRAGC or RRAGD and cycles between an inactive GDP-bound and an active GTP-bound form. In its active form participates in the relocalization of mTORC1 to the lysosomes and its subsequent activation by the GTPase RHEB. Involved in the RCC1/Ran-GTPase pathway. May play a direct role in a TNF-alpha signaling pathway leading to induction of cell death. May alternatively act as a cellular target for adenovirus E3-14.7K, an inhibitor of TNF-alpha functions, thereby affecting cell death.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Lysosome. Note=Predominantly cytoplasmic. May shuttle between the cytoplasm and nucleus, depending on the bound nucleotide state (PubMed:8995684, PubMed:9394008). Colocalizes in vivo with adenovirus E3-14.7K mainly to the cytoplasm especially near the nuclear membrane and in discrete foci on or near the plasma membrane (PubMed:8995684).|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed with highest levels of expression in skeletal muscle, heart, and brain|
