Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits GTP binding activity; GTP-dependent protein binding activity; and GTPase activity. Involved in several processes, including cell morphogenesis involved in differentiation; generation of neurons; and plasma membrane bounded cell projection assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including the kinocilium; pericentriolar material; and ruffle membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the actin filament. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant mental retardation 48; colon adenocarcinoma; and pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; eye; pelvic urethra; and reproductive system. Orthologous to human RAC1 (Rac family small GTPase 1).
