Reaction(KEGG)

Comment
A family of about 50 enzymes with a molecular mass of 21 kDa that are distantly related to the alpha-subunit of heterotrimeric G-protein GTPase (EC 3.6.5.1). They are involved in cell-growth regulation (Ras subfamily), membrane vesicle traffic and uncoating (Rab and ARF subfamilies), nuclear protein import (Ran subfamily) and organization of the cytoskeleton (Rho and Rac subfamilies).
History
EC 3.6.5.2 created 2000 as EC 3.6.1.47, transferred 2003 to EC 3.6.5.2
