RHEB Activates the protein kinase activity of mTORC1, and thereby plays a role in the regulation of apoptosis. Stimulates the phosphorylation of S6K1 and EIF4EBP1 through activation of mTORC1 signaling. Has low intrinsic GTPase activity. Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rheb family. Ubiquitous. Highest levels observed in skeletal and cardiac muscle. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
