Summaries for RAB4A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RAB4A Gene

  • This gene is a member of the largest group in the Ras superfamily of small GTPases, which regulate membrane trafficking. The encoded protein is associated with early endosomes and is involved in their sorting and recycling. The protein also plays a role in regulating the recycling of receptors from endosomes to the plasma membrane. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]

GeneCards Summary for RAB4A Gene

RAB4A (RAB4A, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB4A include Chilblain Lupus. Among its related pathways are Regulation of CFTR activity (norm and CF) and Translocation of GLUT4 to the plasma membrane. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and protein transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAB39A.
