      DescriptionAnti-Rhes Antibody
      Alternate Names
      • GTP-binding protein Rhes
      • Ras homolog enriched in striatum
      • Tumor endothelial marker 2
      Background InformationRas family proteins are molecular switches, which are mediated by extracellular signals and regulate intracellular signaling pathways, thereby controlling a plethora of biological functions such as cell growth, gene transcription, mRNA stability and translation, cytoskeleton organization, peptide trafficking and secrection. Ras proteins are also involved in synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory in the central nervous system.

      As a member of the RASD subfamily of the Ras-related GTP-binding protein superfamily, Rhes is predominantly expressed in the striatal region of the brain, where it reported to influence brain development and function. It is thought that the activation and expression of the Rhes gene is mediated by thyroid hormones in the brain. In humans, a lack of such hormones is known to cause cretinism. Additionally, Rhes -/- knockout mice display marked behavioral abnormalities, a gender-dependent increase in anxiety levels, and a clear deficit in motor coordination.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes a Ras-related protein that is enriched in striatum. The product of this gene binds to GTP and possesses intrinsic GTPase activity. The gene belongs to the Ras superfamily of small GTPases. The exact function of this gene is unknown, but most striatum-specific mRNAs characterized to date encode components of signal transduction cascades.

      Purification MethodAffinity Purfied
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: GTPase signaling protein that binds to and hydrolyzes GTP. Regulates signaling pathways involving G-proteins-coupled receptor and heterotrimeric proteins such as GNB1, GNB2 and GNB3. May be involved in selected striatal competencies, mainly locomotor activity and motor coordination.

      SUBUNIT STRUCTURE: Monomer Potential. Interacts with PIK3CA and UBE2I By similarity. Interacts with GNB1, GNB2 and GNB3. Interacts with HTT; interacts with mutant HTT (mHTT) with a much higher affinity than wild type HTT.

      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor.
      Molecular Weight~33 kDa observed. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Q96D21 (RHES_HUMAN) lists a molecular weight of 30 kDa. A molecular weight of ~50 kDa possibly due to transcriptional variation or post-translational modification may be observed in some cell lysates (Spano, D., et al. (2004). Mol Cell Biol. 24(13):5788-5796.).
