GeneCards Summary for RAB43 Gene
RAB43 (RAB43, Member RAS Oncogene Family) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAB43 include Cone-Rod Dystrophy 2. Among its related pathways are Retrograde transport at the Trans-Golgi-Network and Vesicle-mediated transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAB30.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RAB43 Gene
The small GTPases Rab are key regulators of intracellular membrane trafficking, from the formation of transport vesicles to their fusion with membranes. 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. The low intrinsic GTPase activity of RAB43 is activated by USP6NL. Involved in retrograde transport from the endocytic pathway to the Golgi apparatus. Involved in the transport of Shiga toxin from early and recycling endosomes to the trans-Golgi network. Required for the structural integrity of the Golgi complex. Plays a role in the maturation of phagosomes that engulf pathogens, such as S.aureus and M.tuberculosis.
