Gene: RAC1 (Rac family small GTPase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RAC1
Name: Rac family small GTPase 1
Description: Exhibits GTP binding activity; GTPase activity; and enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including plasma membrane bounded cell projection assembly; positive regulation of cellular component organization; and positive regulation of neutrophil chemotaxis. Localizes to several cellular components, including the recycling endosome membrane; ruffle membrane; and trans-Golgi network. Colocalizes with the actin filament. Implicated in autosomal dominant mental retardation 48; colon adenocarcinoma; and pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Biomarker of colon adenocarcinoma; colon adenoma; colorectal cancer; and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
