Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RAB10 Gene
RAB10 belongs to the RAS (see HRAS; MIM 190020) superfamily of small GTPases. RAB proteins localize to exocytic and endocytic compartments and regulate intracellular vesicle trafficking (Bao et al., 1998 [PubMed 9918381]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2009]
GeneCards Summary for RAB10 Gene
RAB10 (RAB10, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB10 include Carpenter Syndrome 1 and Warburg Micro Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeletal Signaling and Vesicle-mediated transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GDP binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAB8B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RAB10 Gene
The small GTPases Rab are key regulators of intracellular membrane trafficking, from the formation of transport vesicles to their fusion with membranes (PubMed:21248164). Rabs cycle between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form that is able to recruit to membranes different set of downstream effectors directly responsible for vesicle formation, movement, tethering and fusion (PubMed:21248164). That Rab is mainly involved in the biosynthetic transport of proteins from the Golgi to the plasma membrane (PubMed:21248164). Regulates, for instance, SLC2A4/GLUT4 glucose transporter-enriched vesicles delivery to the plasma membrane (By similarity). In parallel, it regulates the transport of TLR4, a toll-like receptor to the plasma membrane and therefore may be important for innate immune response (By similarity). Plays also a specific role in asymmetric protein transport to the plasma membrane (PubMed:16641372). In neurons, it is involved in axonogenesis through regulation of vesicular membrane trafficking toward the axonal plasma membrane (By similarity). In epithelial cells, it regulates transport from the Golgi to the basolateral membrane (PubMed:16641372). May play a role in the basolateral recycling pathway and in phagosome maturation (By similarity). May play a role in endoplasmic reticulum dynamics and morphology controlling tubulation along microtubules and tubules fusion (PubMed:23263280). Together with LRRK2, RAB8A, and RILPL1, it regulates ciliogenesis (PubMed:30398148). When phosphorylated by LRRK2 on Thr-73, binds RILPL1 and inhibits ciliogenesis (PubMed:30398148).
(Microbial infection) Upon Legionella pneumophila infection promotes endoplasmic reticulum recruitment and bacterial replication. Plays a role in remodeling the Legionella-containing vacuole (LCV) into an endoplasmic reticulum-like vacuole.
