Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ARF5 Gene
This gene is a member of the human ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF) gene family. These genes encode small guanine nucleotide-binding proteins that stimulate the ADP-ribosyltransferase activity of cholera toxin and play a role in vesicular trafficking and as activators of phospholipase D. The gene products include 6 ARF proteins and 11 ARF-like proteins and constitute 1 family of the RAS superfamily. The ARF proteins are categorized as class I (ARF1, ARF2,and ARF3), class II (ARF4 and ARF5) and class III (ARF6). The members of each class share a common gene organization.

GeneCards Summary for ARF5 Gene
ARF5 (ADP Ribosylation Factor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARF5 include Cholera. Among its related pathways are Vesicle-mediated transport and Golgi-to-ER retrograde transport. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARF4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARF5 Gene
GTP-binding protein that functions as an allosteric activator of the cholera toxin catalytic subunit, an ADP-ribosyltransferase. Involved in protein trafficking; may modulate vesicle budding and uncoating within the Golgi apparatus.
