GeneCards Summary for RAB11FIP2 Gene
RAB11FIP2 (RAB11 Family Interacting Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB11FIP2 include Griscelli Syndrome, Type 1 and Niemann-Pick Disease, Type C1. Among its related pathways are Aquaporin-mediated transport and Endocytosis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and Rab GTPase binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAB11FIP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RAB11FIP2 Gene
A Rab11 effector binding preferentially phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PtdInsP3) and phosphatidic acid (PA) and acting in the regulation of the transport of vesicles from the endosomal recycling compartment (ERC) to the plasma membrane. Involved in insulin granule exocytosis. Also involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis and membrane trafficking of recycling endosomes, probably originating from clathrin-coated vesicles. Required in a complex with MYO5B and RAB11 for the transport of NPC1L1 to the plasma membrane. Also acts as a regulator of cell polarity. Plays an essential role in phagocytosis through a mechanism involving TICAM2, RAC1 and CDC42 Rho GTPases for controlling actin-dynamics.
