a small G protein of the Ras family with tumor suppressor activity. Induces morphological reversion of a cell line transformed by a Ras oncogene. Activated by guanine nucleotide-exchange factors (GEF) EPAC and EPAC2 in a cAMP-dependent manner, and GFR. Counteracts the mitogenic function of Ras, at least partly because it can interact with Ras GAPs and RAF in a competitive manner. Interacts with SGSM1, SGSM2 and SGSM3.
