Summaries for RILPL2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RILPL2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that contains a rab-interacting lysosomal protein-like domain. This protein may be involved in regulating lysosome morphology. This protein may also be a target for the Hepatitis C virus and assist in viral replication. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]

GeneCards Summary for RILPL2 Gene

RILPL2 (Rab Interacting Lysosomal Protein-Like 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is RILP.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RILPL2 Gene

  • Involved in cell shape and neuronal morphogenesis, positively regulating the establishment and maintenance of dendritic spines. Plays a role in cellular protein transport, including protein transport away from primary cilia. May function via activation of RAC1 and PAK1 (By similarity).
