This is the community wiki page for the gene rac1 please feel free to add any information that is relevant to this gene that is not already captured elsewhere in Xenbase.
Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 5879. From ras-related C3 botulinum toxin substrate 1 (rho family, small GTP binding protein Rac1) to Rac family small GTPase 1
summary from NCBI
The protein encoded by this gene is a GTPase which belongs to the RAS superfamily of small GTP-binding proteins. Members of this superfamily appear to regulate a diverse array of cellular events, including the control of cell growth, cytoskeletal reorganization, and the activation of protein kinases. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
