Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Ric8b
Name: RIC8 guanine nucleotide exchange factor B
Acc ID: GO:0005085
Term: guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity
Definition: Stimulates the exchange of guanyl nucleotides associated with a GTPase. Under normal cellular physiological conditions, the concentration of GTP is higher than that of GDP, favoring the replacement of GDP by GTP in association with the GTPase.
Definition Source(s): GOC:kd, GOC:mah
