Summary: This protein encoded by this gene is a member of the RIN family of Ras interaction-interference proteins, which are binding partners to the RAB5 small GTPases. The protein functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange for RAB5B and RAB31. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]
GeneCards Summary for RIN3 Gene
RIN3 (Ras And Rab Interactor 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Vesicle-mediated transport and RAB GEFs exchange GTP for GDP on RABs. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTPase activator activity and Rab guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is RIN2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RIN3 Gene
Ras effector protein that functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange (GEF) for RAB5B and RAB31, by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. Required for normal RAB31 function.
