Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- Cell growth-inhibiting gene 4 protein,
- growth-inhibiting gene 4 protein,
- RAS-associated protein RAB13,
- cell growth-inhibiting gene 4 protein,
- ras-related protein Rab-13,
- RAB13, member RAS oncogene family,
RAB13 is a member of the Rab family of small G proteins and plays a role in regulating membrane trafficking between trans-Golgi network (TGN) and recycling endosomes (RE). RAB13 is thought to participate in polarized transport, in the assembly and/or the activity of tight junctions, which are components of the apical junctional complex (AJC) of epithelial cells. There are several alternatively spliced transcript variants for this gene, and a pseudogene located on chromosome 12.

No additional breast data available.
RAB13 was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
- Plasma biomarker profiles differ depending on breast cancer subtype but RANTES is consistently increased.
- Discovery and preliminary confirmation of novel early detection biomarkers for triple-negative breast cancer using preclinical plasma samples from the Women's Health Initiative observational study.
