R-Ras2 / TC21
is the only member of R-Ras family of small GTPases that shows transforming activities similar to H-Ras, N-Ras, and K-Ras, and it is also structurally similar to them. R-Ras2 seems to play an important role in activating signal transduction pathways that control cell proliferation. Its mutations are associated with the growth of certain tumors, but also overexpression of the wild type form of R-Ras2 has been frequently detected in various carcinomas. Pseudogenes of R-Ras2 gene are found on chromosomes 1 and 2. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
The mouse monoclonal antibody EM-50 recognizes R-Ras2 / TC21 protein and does not react with R-Ras1, H-Ras, K-Ras, and N-Ras.
