Target

  • Function
    Plasma membrane-associated small GTPase which cycles between active GTP-bound and inactive GDP-bound states. In its active state, binds to a variety of effector proteins to regulate cellular responses such as secretory processes, phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, epithelial cell polarization and growth-factor induced formation of membrane ruffles. Rac1 p21/rho GDI heterodimer is the active component of the cytosolic factor sigma 1, which is involved in stimulation of the NADPH oxidase activity in macrophages (By similarity). Essential for the SPATA13-mediated regulation of cell migration and adhesion assembly and disassembly.
    Isoform B has an accelerated GEF-independent GDP/GTP exchange and an impaired GTP hydrolysis, which is restored partially by GTPase-activating proteins. It is able to bind to the GTPase-binding domain of PAK but not full-length PAK in a GTP-dependent manner, suggesting that the insertion does not completely abolish effector interaction.
  • Tissue specificity
    Isoform B is predominantly identified in skin and epithelial tissues from the intestinal tract. Its expression is elevated in colorectal tumors at various stages of neoplastic progression, as compared to their respective adjacent tissues.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rho family.
  • Domain
    The effector region mediates interaction with DEF6.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    AMPylation at Tyr-32 and Thr-35 are mediated by bacterial enzymes in case of infection by H.somnus and V.parahaemolyticus, respectively. AMPylation occurs in the effector region and leads to inactivation of the GTPase activity by preventing the interaction with downstream effectors, thereby inhibiting actin assembly in infected cells. It is unclear whether some human enzyme mediates AMPylation; FICD has such ability in vitro but additional experiments remain to be done to confirm results in vivo.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Melanosome. Inner surface of plasma membrane possibly with attachment requiring prenylation of the C-terminal cysteine (By similarity). Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • Form
    Rac1 has high sequence homology with other Rac proteins. Therefore some antibodies may show cross-reactivity.

  • Anti-Rac1 antibody [23A8] (ab33186) at 0.3 µg/ml + Rat Brain Microsomes at 40 µg

    Predicted band size : 21 kDa
  • ab33186 staining Rac1 in Mouse intestine tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% BSA 1 hour at 20°C ; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation with citric acid. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/750) for 4 hours at 20°C. An HRP-conjugated Goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/5000) was used as the secondary antibody.
