NRAS Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

NRAS cDNA / Gene Overview

NRAS gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 1p13.2. The NRAS gene is conserved in chimpanzee, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, and frog.194 organisms have orthologs with human gene NRAS.

NRAS cDNA / Gene Function

This is an N-ras oncogene encoding a membrane protein that shuttles between the Golgi apparatus and the plasma membrane. This shuttling is regulated through palmitoylation and depalmitoylation by the ZDHHC9-GOLGA7 complex. The encoded protein, which has intrinsic GTPase activity, is activated by a guanine nucleotide-exchange factor and inactivated by a GTPase activating protein. Mutations in this gene have been associated with somatic rectal cancer, follicular thyroid cancer, autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome, Noonan syndrome, and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia.
