Rheb (Ras Homolog Enriched in Brain) is an evolutionarily conserved member of the Ras family of small GTP-binding proteins originally found to be rapidly induced by synaptic activity in the hippocampus following seizure (1). While it is expressed at relatively high levels in the brain, Rheb is widely expressed in other tissues and may be induced by growth factor stimulation. Like other family members, Rheb triggers activation of the Raf-MEK-MAPK pathway (2). Biochemical and genetic studies demonstrate that Rheb has an important role in regulating the insulin/TOR signaling pathway (3-6). The mammalian target of rapamycin, mTOR, is a serine/threonine protein kinase that acts as a sensor for ATP and amino acids, balancing the availability of nutrients with translation and cell growth. The tuberin/hamartin (TSC2/TSC1) complex inhibits mTOR activity indirectly by inhibiting Rheb via tuberin\'s GAP activity (7).
Immunogen Type: Recombinant Protein
Immunogen Description: Recombinant protein of human RHEB. Target Name: RHEB. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing RHEB are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as RHEB may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. RHEB also interacts with the following gene(s): EIF4EBP1, MLST8, MTOR, PDE6D, RAF1, RPS6KB1, RPTOR, TSC1, TSC2. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene.
