External Ids for ZFYVE27 Gene
This gene encodes a protein with several transmembrane domains, a Rab11-binding domain and a lipid-binding FYVE finger domain. The encoded protein appears to promote neurite formation. A mutation in this gene has been reported to be associated with hereditary spastic paraplegia, however the pathogenicity of the mutation, which may simply represent a polymorphism, is unclear.

GeneCards Summary for ZFYVE27 Gene
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZFYVE27 Gene
Functions as an upstream inhibitor of RAB11, regulating directional protein transport to the forming neurites. Involved in nerve growth factor-induced neurite formation. May have a more general role in cell projections formation.
