RAS proteins are isoprenylated at a CaaX motif in the hypervariable region, where a is an aliphatic amino acid and X is any amino acid (Casey et al, 1989; Dharmaiah et al, 2016; reviewed in Ahean et al, 2018). Geranylgeranylation is favoured when X is leucine, while all other amino acids at this position favour farnesylation by farnesyltransferase (Casey et al, 1989; Reid et al, 2004).
