|Description||Rap1 is a member of the large Ras superfamily of low molecular weight GTP/GDP binding proteins. Like Ras, the Rap proteins cycle between a GDP-bound inactive form and a GTP-bound active form. Since Ras and Rap have the same amino acid sequence in their putative effector domain (aa. 32-40), it seems likely that they perform either similar or antagonistic functions. Rap1A and Rap1B are highly homologous proteins, differing in only 9 of their 184 amino acids. Overexpression of Rap1A (also known as Krev-1) causes reversion of the phenotype of a Ki-Ras-transformed cell line. In vitro, Rap1 can compete efficiently with p21ras for interaction with Ras-GAP. Though they appear to have similar activities, Rap1 and Ras differ in their cellular localization. Ras is found on the inner surface of the plasma membrane while Rap1 is associated with the Golgi. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
