|Other Names||Ras-related protein Rap-2b, RAP2B|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Small GTP-binding protein which cycles between a GDP- bound inactive and a GTP-bound active form. Involved in EGFR and CHRM3 signaling pathways through stimulation of PLCE1. May play a role in cytoskeletal rearrangements and regulate cell spreading through activation of the effector TNIK. May regulate membrane vesiculation in red blood cells.|
|Cellular Location||Recycling endosome membrane; Lipid-anchor; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Associated with red blood cells-released vesicles|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in red blood cells (at protein level).|

This intronless gene belongs to a family of RAS-relatedgenes. The proteins encoded by these genes share approximately 50%amino acid identity with the classical RAS proteins and havenumerous structural features in common. The most strikingdifference between the RAP and RAS proteins resides in their 61stamino acid: glutamine in RAS is replaced by threonine in RAPproteins. Evidence suggests that this protein may bepolyisoprenylated and palmitoylated.
