Summaries for RABIF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RABIF Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SCE4/YPT1/RAB family of small GTP-binding proteins that are involved in the regulation of intracellular vesicular transport. This protein stimulates GTP-GDP exchange in SEC4, and to a lesser extent in YPT1 and RAB3A, and may play a general role in vesicular transport. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]

GeneCards Summary for RABIF Gene

RABIF (RAB Interacting Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RB in Cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RABIF Gene

  • Guanine-nucleotide-releasing protein that acts on members of the SEC4/YPT1/RAB subfamily. Stimulates GDP release from both YPT1 and RAB3A, but is less active on these proteins than on the SEC4 protein. Might play a general role in vesicular transport
