- Ras homolog enriched in brain 2, formerly
- GTP binding protein Rheb
- GTP-binding protein Rheb
FunctionStimulates the phosphorylation of S6K1 and EIF4EBP1 through activation of mTORC1 signaling. Activates the protein kinase activity of mTORC1. Has low intrinsic GTPase activity.
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Highest levels observed in skeletal and cardiac muscle.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rheb family.
modificationsFarnesylation is important for efficiently activating mTORC1-mediated signaling.
Cellular localizationCell membrane.
