GeneCards Summary for RAB29 Gene
RAB29 (RAB29, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB29 include Kufor-Rakeb Syndrome and Frontotemporal Dementia. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and RAB geranylgeranylation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAB38.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RAB29 Gene
The small GTPases Rab are key regulators in vesicle trafficking (PubMed:24788816). Essential for maintaining the integrity of the endosome-trans-Golgi network structure (By similarity). Together with LRRK2, plays a role in the retrograde trafficking pathway for recycling proteins, such as mannose 6 phosphate receptor (M6PR), between lysosomes and the Golgi apparatus in a retromer-dependent manner (PubMed:24788816). Recruits LRRK2 to the Golgi complex and stimulates LRRK2 kinase activity (PubMed:29212815). Regulates neuronal process morphology in the intact central nervous system (CNS) (By similarity). May play a role in the formation of typhoid toxin transport intermediates during Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (S.Typhi) epithelial cell infection (PubMed:22042847).
