Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FAM71A Gene
This gene encodes a protein that interacts with the Rab2B small GTPase and may be important for integrity of the Golgi body. A knockdown of this gene induces fragmentation of the Golgi, similar to the effect seen with a knockdown of the Rab2B small GTPase. The encoded protein has an N-terminal Rab-binding domain specific for Rab2B. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2017]
