Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0002497
UniProt IDQ92963
Primary gene name(s)RIT1
Synonym gene name(s)RIBB, RIT, ROC1
Protein nameGTP-binding protein Rit1
Protein functionPlays a crucial role in coupling NGF stimulation to the activation of both EPHB2 and MAPK14 signaling pathways and in NGF-dependent neuronal differentiation. Involved in ELK1 transactivation through the Ras-MAPK signaling cascade that mediates a wide variety of cellular functions, including cell proliferation, survival, and differentiation. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15632082, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23791108}.
