The protonation states of GTP and GppNHp in Ras proteins.

The small GTPase Ras transmits signals in a variety of cellular signaling pathways, most prominently in cell proliferation. GTP hydrolysis in the active center of Ras acts as a prototype for many GTPases and is the key to the understanding of several diseases, including cancer. Therefore, Ras has been the focus of intense research over the last decades. A… CONTINUE READING
