GeneCards Summary for RAB27B Gene
RAB27B (RAB27B, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB27B include Griscelli Syndrome and Piebald Trait. Among its related pathways are Salivary secretion and Vesicle-mediated transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and protein domain specific binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAB27A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RAB27B Gene
Small GTPase which cycles between active GTP-bound and inactive GDP-bound states. In its active state, binds to a variety of effector proteins to regulate homeostasis of late endocytic pathway, including endosomal positioning, maturation and secretion (PubMed:30771381). Plays a role in NTRK2/TRKB axonal anterograde transport by facilitating the association of NTRK2/TRKB with KLC1 (PubMed:21775604). May be involved in targeting uroplakins to urothelial apical membranes (By similarity).
