function summary function summary

a small GTPase that cycles between inactive GDP-bound and active GTP-bound conformations, regulates cellular responses to many extracellular stimuli, including soluble growth factors, through PI3K, MEK/ERK and other pathways, the protein is farnesylated at a terminal CAAX motif and may be additionally modified by one or two palmitic acids just upstream of the CAAX motif to anchor the protein in the membrane; two isoforms occur in a cell as a result of alternative splicing at the C-terminus [Pubmed]
