Summaries for WDR44 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR44 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that interacts with the small GTPase rab11. A similar protein in rat binds the GTP-containing active form of rab11. This protein may play a role in endosome recycling. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for WDR44 Gene
