Summaries for RAB3C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RAB3C Gene

  • This gene is a member of the RAS oncogene family and encodes a small GTPase. Other similar small GTPases are known to be involved in vesicle trafficking, and the encoded protein was shown to play a role in recycling phagocytosed MHC class 1 complexes to the cell surface. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]

GeneCards Summary for RAB3C Gene

RAB3C (RAB3C, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and Metabolism of proteins. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and myosin V binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAB3A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RAB3C Gene

  • Protein transport. Probably involved in vesicular traffic (By similarity).
