Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome.

G protein of the Ras family that positively regulates phagocytosis and negatively regulates macropinocytosis (PubMed:9950684). May be involved in the activation of guanylyl cyclase during the response to hyperosmotic conditions (PubMed:12186953). Overexpressing cells generate alterations in cell shape and contractile responses (PubMed:12186953). Involved in chemotaxis via regulation of the balance of Ras and Rap signaling at the leading edge of chemotaxing cells (PubMed:27237792).3 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
