Detection of Human Rit1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human brain tissue and HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Rit1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4697) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Rit1 at approximately 25 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.

Rit1 is a member of the Ras-related small GTPase superfamily. The 219 amino acid, 25 kDa human Rit1 is a cytoplasmic cell membrane-associated protein that is expressed in most tissues. It is widely expressed in the developing and adult nervous systems and participates in NGF-induced axon outgrowth. Rit1 forms complexes with other small GTPases, such as cdc42 and Rac1, that are important during cell growth and polarity. Human Rit1 shares 95% amino acid identity with mouse and rat Rit1.
