Ras proteins are members of the superfamily of small GTP-binding proteins that function as molecular switches controlling a variety of signaling and transport pathways. The Ras family of GTP-binding proteins consists of the classical Ras (Ha-, K-, and N-), R-Ras, Rap1, Rap2, Ral, Rheb, Rin, Rit, TC21/R-Ras2, and M-Ras/R-Ras3 (M-Ras). TC21 is a Ras-like GTPase with high oncogenic potential that is found mutated in some human tumors and overexpressed in breast cancer cell lines. It binds physically to c-Raf-1 in a GTP-dependent manner. TC21 (Q72L) is a constitutive active mutant of TC21.
