GeneCards Summary for RAB5A Gene

RAB5A (RAB5A, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB5A include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 2 and endemic typhus. Among its related pathways are Ras signaling pathway and Endocytosis. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GDP binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAB5C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RAB5A Gene

  • The small GTPases Rab are key regulators of intracellular membrane trafficking, from the formation of transport vesicles to their fusion with membranes. Rabs cycle between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form that is able to recruit to membranes different sets of downstream effectors directly responsible for vesicle formation, movement, tethering and fusion. RAB5A is required for the fusion of plasma membranes and early endosomes. Contributes to the regulation of filopodia extension.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with SGSM1 and SGSM3 (By similarity). Interacts with PIK3CB (By similarity). Interacts with GDI1; this promotes dissociation from membranes. Interacts with EEA1. Interacts with RIN1 and GAPVD1, which regulate its pathway, probably by acting as a GEF. Interacts with RINL. Interacts with ALS2CL, SUN2, ZFYVE20 and RUFY1. Interacts with RABEP1; one RABEP1 homodimer binds two RAB5A chains, but at opposite sides of the dimer.
