    Molecular mass:
    65072 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterotrimer composed of RABGGTA, RABGGTB and CHM; within this trimer, RABGGTA and RABGGTB form the catalytic component B, while CHM (component A) mediates peptide substrate binding. The Rab GGTase dimer (RGGT) interacts with CHM (component A) prior to Rab protein binding; the association is stabilized by geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGpp). The CHM:RGGT:Rab complex is destabilized by GGpp.
