RAB13

Basics

Aliases:
This biomarker is also known as:
  • ras-related protein Rab-13,
  • RAB13, member RAS oncogene family,
  • RAS-associated protein RAB13,
  • Cell growth-inhibiting gene 4 protein,
  • cell growth-inhibiting gene 4 protein,
  • growth-inhibiting gene 4 protein,

Description…

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.

This gene 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). The encoded protein is involved in the assembly of tight junctions, which are components of the apical junctional complex (AJC) of epithelial cells. The AJC plays a role in forming a barrier between luminal contents and the underlying tissue. Additional functions associated with the protein include endocytic recycling of occludin, regulation of epithelial cell scattering, neuronal regeneration and regulation of neurite outgrowth. Alternately spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. A pseudogene associated with this gene is located on chromosome 12.

RAB13 is part of the pathway: Tight junction - Homo sapiens (human)
