Protein Information
Name RASA1
Synonyms GAP, RASA
Function Inhibitory regulator of the Ras-cyclic AMP pathway. Stimulates the GTPase of normal but not oncogenic Ras p21; this stimulation may be further increased in the presence of NCK1.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm.
Tissue Location In placental villi, detected only in the trophoblast layer (cytotrophoblast and syncytiotrophoblast). Not detected in stromal, endothelial or Hofbauer cells (at protein level).

RasGAP, a regulator of Ras and Rho, stimulates the GTPase activity of normal RAS p21 but not its oncogenic counterpart. RasGAP is a Caspase 3 substrate (1) and acts as both pro- and anti-apoptotic protein depending on the extent of its cleavage by caspases (2). At low levels of caspase activity, RasGAP is cleaved at position 455, generating an N-terminal fragment (fragment N) and a C-terminal fragment (fragment C). Fragment C alone can induce apoptosis, but this response is completely inhibited by fragment N (3). Fragment N appears to be a general blocker of apoptosis downstream of caspase activation because it inhibits caspase 9-induced cell death. At higher caspase activity, fragment N is further processed and Cleavage of fragment N abrogates its protective functions, and hence the second cleavage of RasGAP promotes apoptosis (4).
