External Ids for RPH3A Gene
Exocytosis of neurotransmitters and hormones is fundamental to synaptic neurotransmission and cell-cell communication. RAB3A (MIM 179390) is a small G protein that is thought to act at late stages of exocytosis, and RPH3A is a RAB3A effector (Lin et al., 2007 [PubMed 17149709]).[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for RPH3A Gene
RPH3A (Rabphilin 3A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPH3A include synucleinopathy. Among its related pathways are Deregulation of Rab and Rab Effector Genes in Bladder Cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and Rab GTPase binding. An important paralog of this gene is SYTL1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RPH3A Gene
Protein transport. Probably involved with Ras-related protein Rab-3A in synaptic vesicle traffic and/or synaptic vesicle fusion. Could play a role in neurotransmitter release by regulating membrane flow in the nerve terminal (By similarity).
